Mobbing: why do we talk so much about it? Manifestations of workplace violence do not only measure maintenance and care of working risk. They also denote the state of relationship between the way of producing, the meaning of work, social ties, rights... Work at the time of globalisation is marked by irrepressible violence and seems to denote the irreconcilability between the forms it assumes in the universal market and the political rules of modernity. Do accidents and work-related diseases (in addition to environmental disasters and wars) dull the relationship between economy and politics in democracies and totalitarian regimes? Is the tribute of a simplified anthropology enough to alleviate the concern that creeps on the social quality of the places in our world?
