According to Marx (following Rousseau?) our human potential is most fully realized through our interaction with nature–through the creative, thoughtful transformation of raw materials into a useful, finished product. We can have an intimate identification and relationship with such products. Think “the fruits of your labor” or a person who manufactures a small amount of fine “craft” products, or the popularity of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects people undertake–not simply to save money, but for the satisfaction that comes from saying it is truly “yours”.
