Reclaiming Leisure: Art, Sport, and Philosophy
Graduate studies at Western
Palgrave Macmillan (2005)
|Abstract||Leisure activities account for much of our time - and money. But are contemporary forms of leisure good for us? Are they really leisure? And how much does (and should) leisure matter? Classical philosophers paid attention to these questions. Increasingly, modern philosophers too are realizing the importance of leisure, and of a good leisure / work balance. Hayden Ramsay looks at the meaning of leisure, and the links between recreation, relaxation, virtue, and happiness. By focusing on leisure activities such as sport, travel, music and reading, Ramsay explores the need for good play in a good life.|
