Working, which is one of the most fundamental and most important activities of people, plays a central role in human life, and individuals have diverse attitudes toward working -due to economic, social, psychological, and other reasons. In this study, relations among attitudes towards working, mentality and religion are evaluated in two stages. In the first stage, the reasons for workings, the meaning of working, and their relation with culture and society are examined, and in the second stage, concepts, attitude, and mentality, are explained, and relations among attitudes toward working, mentality and religion are assessed.
