Time on my hands: hands off my time

Paddick, Robert J. (1982). Time on my hands: hands off my time. Leisure Studies. 1(3): 355-364. Published online Sept 2006. DOI: 10.1080/02614368200390281

Abstract: There is today a lack of time for the contemplation of ends, and leisure and education are related to this problem. The usual concept of education for leisure is too limited: being part of the ‘demand and supply’ school of leisure thinking, it equates ‘popular’ with ‘good’. The slogans ‘education for work’ and ‘education for leisure’ ignore the fact that it is the same individual who moves from work to leisure. If we ask what kind of leisure ought to be encouraged, we are led to consider what kind of people and what kind of society ought to be promoted.
