Mental labour
1 Contrast between industrial and information machines
1.1 Substituting for (and enhancing) physical and mental labour
2 Relations between mental, intellectual and clerical labour
2.1 Relate to the material basis of being
2.2 Practice in advance of consciousness
2.3 Adequacy of existing distinctions
2.3.1 Pre-existing characterisations of mental labour
2.3.2 Intellectual labour
2.3.3 Clerical labour
2.3.3.1 Clerical labour can be described as a machine process
2.3.3.2 Some forms of clerical labour can not be transferred into machine process (Dictiction)
2.3.4 Division of occupations
2.4 Possibility of distinctions corresponding to the material basis of being
3 Semantic
3.1 Examples
3.1.1 Human understanding and composition of written language may be highly intractable computationally
3.1.2 Writing is undifferentiated (no divisions). Mental labor not broken down into intellectual (semantic) / clerical
3.1.3 Spell checker
3.2 As human mental work motivated by direct considerations of meaning
3.3 Semantic labour increasingly exists as the residue of what has not been reduced to a syntactic process
3.4 Semantic labour can exceed syntactic labour or processes
3.5 The divide between intellectual and clerical work is becoming more blurred
4 Syntactic
4.1 Examples
4.1.1 Copying is a form of syntactic labour
4.1.2 Adding numbers
4.2 Motivation
4.2.1 This labour is much cheaper so if a process can be done syntacticly, it will be
4.3 Labour & Process
4.3.1 Motivated or determined by patterns
5 "Syntax is not semantics" (Searle, 1980)
5.1 Warrant for distinction of semantic from syntactic labour (addition of concept of labour).
6 The distinction of semantic from syntactic mental labour has been increasingly adopted
6.1 A fundamental distinction between semantic and syntactic labor lies in the fact that the former is ‘irreducibly human’ and not amenable to mechanization, whereas the latter is ‘transferable to technology as [a form of] machine process.’
7 Orginates as semantic labour
7.1 Syntactic labour progressively separates out
7.1.1 Easier ways to complete tasks are worked out
8 Distinctions with regard to labour
8.1 Universal and communal labour
8.2 Universal labour and syntactic labour
8.3 Communal labour and semantic labour
9 Labour and expertise
9.1 Knowledge as the product of semantic mental labour over time
9.2 Expertise as a manifestation of knowledge
9.3 Exchange value of expertise
10 Results of dynamic of interchange
10.1 Expansion of scope of syntactic processes as a significant result (Expansion of human capacities)
11 Strategic
11.1 If we can understand what is going on, we can intervene more
