Jürgen Habermas on Productive Forces - Dictionary of Arguments
Def Productive Forces/Marx/Habermas: According to Marx, productive forces consist of a) the labour force of those working in production, the producers; b) the technically usable knowledge, insofar as it is converted into productivity-increasing work tools, into production techniques; c) organisational knowledge, insofar as it is used to set workers in motion efficiently, to qualify workers and to effectively coordinate the division of labour cooperation of the workers.
The productive forces determined the degree of possible availability of natural processes.
