Alasdair MacIntyre´s criticism to Modernity is essentially referred to the problem of compartmentalization, restricting the possibility to achieve excellence in an integral lifestyle. Among other reasons, compartmentalization is derived especially from an insulated valorization of the workplace because of a reductionist understanding of productivity in terms of mere efficiency. Contrary to this, MacIntyre has mention the importance to understand productivity in terms of craftmanship. Hence, this paper is aimed to explain what excellence in production is— i.e., craftmanship – and what role plays in achieving a unity of life and excellence in modern corporations.
