Leisure, Chapter 5

I did not understand much of what Joseph Pieper was saying in this final chapter. Part of the reason, I think, is that I don’t share enough of his assumptions to understand his points readily, and I’m not interested in learning enough about his assumptions to do that.

I do have one last thing to say in response to the overall reading, based on what I think is a wrongheaded distinction between work and leisure. But I don’t have time to write it up right now, and it wouldn’t hurt me to spend a few more days thinking it through.
