Work, Ambition, and Envy

Work, Ambition, and Envy

(p.80) 4 Work, Ambition, and Envy
In the Midst of Life

A. L. Epstein

University of California Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of Tolai attitudes toward work, arguing that restlessness encapsulates much of what lies at the back of such attitudes. But what promotes this restlessness? Toward what ends is all this striving directed, and what are the rewards it offers? At issue here are such questions as how the Tolai understand achievement, and how they respond to it in themselves and others. These matters are taken up in the remainder of the chapter.

Keywords:   Tolai, work attitudes, ambition, restlessness
