According to philosopher Josef Pieper (2009), leisure is the basis of culture. How a culture chooses to spend its time is directly relevant to how it will work towards having that time. Pieper (2009, 20) quotes Aristotle in that leisure is the center of life around which all other activities revolve. Through the concept of what one chooses to do comes the idea of what one must do in order to be able to facilitate that desire. The way in which the modern world defines work and leisure is far different from that of the ancient world. These concepts have evolved in ways in which work has become the center of life rather than the facilitation of life.
