  The Leisure Theory of Value
Leisure is a basic resource which is necessary for, and which is used up in, the performance of any action whatever, and therefore in pursuit or enjoyment of any value whatever.
Leisure is the end of those other values; we derive a certain amount of leisure from them, i.e., those other values sustain our lives for some period of time.
Leisure came first: men have had the potential to measure values in terms of leisure for as long as they have been able to count, while money can only exist in a social context, and only then when trade is quite advanced.

  Leisure - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Because leisure time is free from compulsory activities such as employment, running a business, household chores, education, day-to-day stress, eating, and sleeping, it is often referred to as "free time".
Etymologically, the word leisure descends from the Latin word licere, meaning "to be permitted" or "to be free", via Old French leisir, and first appeared in the early 14th century.
The notions of leisure and leisure time are thought to have emerged in the late nineteenth century with the rise of mechanized industry.

 Are we welcome? African American racial acceptance in leisure activities and the importance given to children's leisure ...
This study investigated differences between middle-class African American and middle-class European American adults in their perceptions of how "welcome" African Americans are in 20 leisure activities common to the study area, and in the importance given to children's participation in these activities.
From a similar viewpoint, Philipp (1995) found that the appeal of many leisure activities to African Americans, and the comfort felt while doing these activities, might be lessened by feelings of discrimination which were associated with the activities.
In addition, a theoretical framework which acknowledged discrimination and the racial acceptance associated with leisure activities would have important consequences for understanding how some leisure preferences are formed in African American children, since the literature suggests that children's behavior has been strongly influenced by parental beliefs and behavior (Sigel, 1985).
