Josef Pieper teaches that ancient and medieval cultures embraced and understood the immense value and need for authentic leisure. Leisure is foundational to all cultures, and opens the possibility of contemplation of the nature of God. Pieper laments that our reductionistic world of total labor has suppressed leisure, and warns of the destruction of our culture and ourselves if the art of silence, insight, stillness - authentic leisure in place of our busyness and useless amusements - are not re-embraced.
