Introduction: Politics of Sensibilities, Society 4.0 and Digital Labour
This chapter aims to offer an introductory overview in which the current contents of the research on Society 4.0, digital labour and politics of the sensibilities are exposed. The objective of this chapter is not only to provide the reader with a clear picture of how the three fields of study are connected but also to facilitate the comprehension of the general proposal on the politics of the sensibilities from the perspective of a sociology of bodies/emotions. The main objective is to understand some of the deepest transformations of current society through the articulation of these three fields. This chapter seeks to make visible how the spheres of Society 4.0 interrelate with the features of digital labour in such a way as to generate the current politics of sensibilities. In the search for connections between the transformations in work and society, this chapter ends by suggesting the idea of the emergence of “sensibilities of platforms”.
