Short description of contents:
The term free time (like Italian tempo libero, Spanish tiempo libre, and German Freizeit; cf. American spare time) is defined etymologically as the opposite of “occupied time” or working hours. The “freedom” of time has positive connotations; it suggests voluntary, pleasant occupations and a historical process of liberation from social obligations and travail. This is ultimately a negative definition, since free time is determined primarily buy what it does not entail.
