The 2010 Governor's Summit on Workforce Solutions will be held in Casper June 17th and 18th. The dinner speaker for the event on the 17th will be Matthew B. Crawford, a philosopher and best-selling author of Shop Class as Soulcraft, a book that brings alive an experience that was once quite common, but now seems to be receding from society -- the experience of making and fixing things with your hands.
Joan Evans, Director of the Department of Workforce Services, is excited about welcoming Crawford to speak at the event.
As a speaker, Crawford draws from the history of philosophy to consider how economic choices form -- or deform -- the country. Often darkly funny, Crawford mixes stories of contemporary life with careful arguments to illuminate our ongoing struggle to live a fully human life.
