"Human beings have suffered a communication eclipse as a result of rapid technological advancements and conspicuous consumption. Consequences of this communication eclipse can be devastating to the human condition. Philosophical Leisure: Recuperative Praxis for Human Communication invites us to understand the ontological and phenomenological difference between leisure and recreation. This distinction is important since outcomes of each activity differ dramatically. Philosophical leisure can repair our ability to communicate with others at a deeply human level. So, be prepared to revision your understanding of leisure and experience a transformation ofyour soul."--BOOK JACKET.
