The meaning of Otium
Otium, a Latin abstract term originated by the Roman poet Quintus Ennius around 190BC, has a variety of meanings, including leisure time in which a person can enjoy eating, playing, resting, contemplation and academic endeavours. It sometimes, but not always, relates to a time in a person’s retirement after previous service to the public or private sector. Otium can be a temporary time of leisure, that is sporadic. It can have intellectual, virtuous or immoral implications. It originally had the idea of withdrawing from one’s daily business or affairs to engage in activities that were considered to be artistically valuable or enlightening (i.e. speaking, writing, philosophy). It had particular meaning to businessmen, diplomats, philosophers and poets.
