The central issue addressed by Veblen (1899) in The Theory of the Leisure Class is the honorific value of leisure in mass culture. He shows little interest in the intrinsic character of leisure activities. Indeed, his argument questions if leisure can be understood as activity ‘for its own sake’ or as a ‘natural’ expression of human capacities.

'In his first and best-known book, Veblen defines the social attitudes and values that condone the misuse of wealth and observes the variety of ways in which the resources of modern society are wasted. Chief among these is the practice of conspicuous consumption, a pattern of behavior that more than survives to the present day. With exquisite irony, Veblen discusses the hollowness of our canons of taste and culture and considers the emptiness of those habits of life and thought that many of us like to regard as our strengths.'--Page 4 of cover
