Why does GOP want us to work all the time, asks professor of what? | Leisure | Scoop.it
So we know the headline in Politico Magazine is, "Why Do Republicans Want Us to Work All the Time?" But what's this about the author's bio? Benjamin Kline Hunnicut is professor of leisure studies a...
Cori Hansen's insight:

"Through the last century, observers such as John Maynard Keynes, Julien Huxley, Dorothy Canfield Fisher and Eric Sevareid regularly predicted that soon America would enter an age of leisure in which we would chose to devote more and more of our lives to the “pursuit of happiness” promised in the Declaration of Independence. As technology created “labor-saving” machines and the economy grew, they reasoned, we would gradually be able to buy back more of our time from our jobs, preferring leisure to new goods and services that we had never needed, or even seen before.

Then real progress would begin. Humane and moral progress. Instead of perpetual consumerism and the infinite increase in material wealth, we would naturally turn to improving the human condition, learning how to live together “wisely, agreeable, and well,” as Keynes put it. Progress would then take the form of healthier families, communities and cities—the increase of knowledge, the enjoyment of nature, history and other peoples, an increasing delight in the marvels of the human spirit, the practice of our beliefs and values together, the finding of common ground for conviviality, expanding our awareness of God, wondering in Creation."

Real Good For Free: The Paradox of Leisure Time - Association for Psychological Science

Real Good For Free: The Paradox of Leisure Time - Association for Psychological Science | Leisure | Scoop.it

I’m pretty busy. Like most people I know, I try to balance a lot of different things—a full-time job, household chores, cooking and meals, regular exercise, time with family and friends. Throw in an occasional bike ride, a movie or museum, maybe even reading a book—oh, and sleep—and there aren’t many free minutes left in a typical week.

Cori Hansen's insight:

objective vs subjective time

spending time on yourself/wasting time vs volunteering/giving time

Leisure: The Basis of College | Intercollegiate Review

Leisure: The Basis of College | Intercollegiate Review | Leisure | Scoop.it
In his magnificent little book Leisure: The Basis of Culture, philosopher Josef Pieper tries to get at that elusive idea, “leisure.” It's not “free time” or “relaxation,” which is how we typically understand it.
Cori Hansen's insight:

leisure is attitude not an act. school used to be relaxing, now it is grueling as ppl try to squeeze meaning out of things rather than just waiting for it to reveal meaning to them. promotes more leisurely, relaxed, purposeful lifestyle
