Abstract
In the thesis I begin with trying to clarify how we have understood our working time until today and how we ended up like we did, by looking back at the history of working hours and how people have evaluated and looked upon their time use historically.

To answer that question I use Paul Fuehrer’s theory of how modern human beings’ time use is colonized by the economic hegemony. The thesis ends with a discussion about how the human rights perspective handles the question of working hours, both discussing the right to work and the right to free time. (Less)
