SUMMARY: This text continues a reflection on the limits of Sociology —the sociology of labor, in our case—, which oscillates between, on the one hand, the triviality of reproducing an ideology of more market, more wear and crumb-like labor force, and, on the other, the dominating lines of the Social Science Citation Index, which sings odes to jut-in-time systems, flexible and light production, and phone work. Social complexity blurrs and hides the contours of what used to be (?) clear wage-work: jobs, engraved within such a society, are today among the misteries of what up to now was non-labor's exclusive space, or socially and geographically scattered, although probably more centralized than ever; in any case, they are invisible to a theoretically orphaned look, which does not strive to renew its conceptual and methodological instruments.
CULTURAL REFERENCE: Raiders of the Lost Ark (En busca del arca perdida) is a 1981 American adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg. It was executive produced by George Lucas. Starring Harrison Ford, it was the first installment in the Indiana Jones film franchise to be released, though it is the second in internal chronological order. It pits Indiana Jones (Ford) against a group of Nazis who are searching for the Ark of the Covenant, which Adolf Hitler believes will make his army invincible.
