Rezensionen
'...an exciting and engaging book that...provides an excellent and rare application of sharp philosophical insight into the psychological, moral, and cultural basis of our engagement in Leisure.' - Dr Carwyn Jones, University of Wales Institute Cardiff

'The idea of leisure needs careful philosophical exploration if it is to be saved from trivialization or appropriated as another consumerist value. Hayden Ramsay's book provides just that exploration. He examines the philosophical tradition within which the concept of value has been best developed, and shows how the idea is part of an understanding of the nature and meaning of human action. This is an absorbing and very helpful study.' - John Haldane, Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Centre for Ethics, Philosophy and Public Affairs, University of St. Andrews, UK
