Three classical models l.jpg
THREE CLASSICAL MODELS

  • GREEK

  • Leisure is truly worthwhile and for the privileged

  • work is disdained and only for slaves

  • Through leisure we realize our true humanity

  • contemplation, thinking, dreaming, appreciation of beauty, relationships

  • PROTESTANT

  • Industry, individualism, frugality, ambition, success all have virtue

  • Leisure is time off from work and a reward for hard work

  • Leisure activities: family welfare, worship, catharsis, purpose

  • reading, writing family budget, visiting friends, sewing, chopping wood

  • HEBRAIC

  • Balance of work and leisure

  • Leisure is evident in dance, feasts, celebration of life, hospitality to travelers, time for relationships

  • Johnston says this model most typifies Biblical Christianity

  • Says we may look in vain for fully developed theology of leisure
