On Leisure

Roger Kimball, conservative culture critic, has posted a reflection on the purpose and leisure, and some thoughts on Josef Pieper's important work, "Leisure, The Basis of Culture."

I tend to think it is one of the most important duties of Christians and conservatives engaged in the culture wars to recover this conception of leisure. The problem is trying to foster leisure in an overly-competitive consumer environment where we are inundated with tasks that require us to live in a perpetual state of busyness (except when we are blogging of course!).

The post can be accessed through the New Criterion Web site.

booklover:

Thanks for directing us to that article. I think this is a huge topic, and one of the reasons that I am homeschooling my children; that leisure is something that requires time to get into, and it often does not happen within the "institutional school" setting.

Time. We need to have more time to pursue what is worth it.
