Leisure Education: A Serious Task, Not Self-Delusion Nor Child's Play.
Leisure is a function of the individual's interaction with the environment, both social and physical. The sense of freedom from obligation (or the "leisure experience"), and the context in which this experience might take place, differ significantly from person to person. These factors depend on each person's individual background and socialization history. These complexities must be taken into account in educating for leisure. A set of moral principles and values needs to be examined, and a new leisure ethic developed. (Author/JD)
