From the abstract:
A nascent interest in work as a vocation–a profound source of life meaning and human dignity–may be emerging today. This impending change is discussed by focusing on “calling”–that wonder from antiquity–which commands conviction and commitment in service to the public. The nature of calling, its retreat, the possibilities for its revival, and the need for resolve are examined in seeking lives of significance.
