Most widely held works by Josef Pieper
Leisure, the basis of culture by Josef Pieper( Book )
67 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in English and German and held by 2,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the most important philosophy titles published in the twentieth century, Joseph Pieper's Leisure, the Basis of Culture is more significant, even more crucial than it was when it first appeared fifty years ago. Pieper shows that Greeks understood and valued leisure, as did the medieval Europeans. He points out that religion can be born only in leisure. Leisure that allows time for the contemplation of the nature of God. Leisure has been, and always will be, the first foundation of any culture. He maintains that our bourgeois world of total labor has vanquished leisure, and issues a startling warning: Unless we regain the art of silence and insight, the ability for nonactivity, unless we substitute true leisure for our hectic amusements, we will destroy our culture and ourselves. These astonishing essays contradict all our pragmatic and puritanical conceptions about labor and leisure; Joseph Pieper demolishes the twentieth-century cult of work as he predicts its destructive consequences

J. Pieper, philosophe et théologien laïc, évoque le temps de la liturgie, ce temps où les hommes arrêtent leurs activités pour rendre grâce à Dieu. Pour lui, ce temps va petit à petit disparaître dans une société où le repos dominical n'a plus de sens, où les dernières marques du christianisme s'estompent
