Abstract

The following chapter attempts a hermeneutic-phenomenological interpretation of the sense of boredom as a fundamental possibility to comprehend our relationship with the world, according to Heideggerian analyses contained in its course of Freiburg of 1929–1930, entitled Die Grundbegriffe der Metaphysik [The Fundamental Concepts of Metaphysics]. We will show that, precisely from the assumption of a particular form of boredom, it can be possible to resignify the world, and from this, to open a creative possibility, specifically between the understanding ajar from the boredom by something and the creation of attunement.
