The topic of the article is boredom experienced as a condition of chronic monotony and not sufficient simulation that blocks man’s cognitive and creative activity. However, it has also positive aspects, which is also mentioned in the text. The writer discusses the concept of boredom, its types (situational boredom, existential boredom, chronic boredom and boredom caused by surfeit), sources of boredom and some effects of chronic boredom which are important from the pedagogic point of view. The boredom is juxtaposed with curiosity and cognitive fascination, which is the basis of internal motivation connected with an effective creative process. He also notices and shortly presents positive aspects of ordinary boredom and the condition of “dolce far niente”, “sanctified passiveness” as a chance to slow down and contemplate oneself and the world. The conclusion, however, is that the boredom should be perceived as a permanent state of the lack of research attitude.
