A Philosophy of Boredom Lars Svendsen
Publisher: Reaktion Books

Does work, which for him is at the opposite pole of human existence from boredom, save us from self-destruction? In the latest edition of The Marketplace of Ideas, Colin Marshall asks Lee Rourke about his novel, The Canal, his influences, and a philosophical way of thinking about boredom [Listen]. FYI, here's the "official" wording of Sunday's topic: BOREDOM: what's the nature and meaning of boredom? Is this just a psychological issue, or also a philosophical puzzle? The Greeks—Aristotle, Plato and Socrates—make the cut almost every time even though they worked overtime to give philosophy a popular image caked in fossilized boredom. "Boredom has to be accepted as an unavoidable fact, as life's own gravity." - Professor Lars Svendsen, A Philosophy of Boredom (2005), p154. It didn't take much digging to find philosophical references to it. For theory, the undermining of common sense means that philosophy becomes separated from empirical enquiry, to the impoverishment of both. This is achieved in the awakening attunement, of which boredom is the occasion and for which a philosophical mind cultivates. Boredom is what I'm writing about right now regarding Cedric Price's Generator and Gordon Pask's boredom routines. Certainly, the concept of boredom animated the thoughts of a number of early twentieth-century philosophers. A great many and significant things can therefore reveal themselves in boredom.
