#153 - The third dimension of hybrid working
Today's episode from 24th February 2022. First this morning: Is it time to give WeWork another go? The company's new offering of a more flexible “on demand” service seems to fall into the category of so-called "third spaces" (not quite the office and away from home). Can this be a new solution to hybrid working? Then later, philosophy and manual work may seem at complete odds with each other but many intellectuals worked as engineers, farmers and carpenters. We take a look at the relationship between the two and why different professions working together today could lead to greater understanding. Many people feel that working from home is not productive whilst the commute wastes several hours a week, which has resulted in the rise of the ‘third space’: not the office, not the home but somewhere in-between. For The Financial Times, Janina Conboye examines how these spaces can offer a flexible, affordable professional space on your doorstep and fit into how hybrid work evolves and shapes the office landscape. The gulf between jobs that are considered ‘intellectual’ and ones that are deemed manual makes no sense. Simply put, in order for a society to function as it should, we need both types of profession. For Psyche, Lee Clarke reflects on the stereotypes of philosophical education and increasing understanding in a world of diverse professions.
