Leisure and Philosophy by Hayden Ramsay
Book DescriptionLeisure activities account for much of our time - and money. But are contemporary forms of leisure good for us? Are they really leisure? And how much does (and should) leisure matter? Classical philosophers paid attention to these questions. Increasingly, modern philosophers too are realizing the importance of leisure, and of a good leisure/work balance. Hayden Ramsay looks at the meaning of leisure, and the links between recreation, relaxation, virtue, and happiness. By focussing on leisure activities such as sport, travel, music and reading, Ramsay explores the need for good play in a good life.

Beyond Virtue, Hardback (August 1997)» View all books by Hayden Ramsay
This book argues that both virtue ethics and natural law are necessary since virtue is commitment to objective human goods, and argues integrity is planning one's life by commitment to reasonableness. Ramsay also analyses Aquinas's accounts of emotion, the body and happiness in terms of integrity.
