Summary/Abstract: By his nature man is a creative being, an acting subject who transforms the reality that surrounds him. To realize this continuous “creation,” transformation, improvement of the environment wherein he lives, it is indispensable to attain knowledge which enables the cognition and under-standing of principles ruling the world. Learning about reality, which is present at every stage of human development, is a specific form of work that emerges from human nature and aims at satisfying human needs. Such work discovers predispositions and talents of a man who with gaining knowledge develops his scientific interests and satisfies the need of the development of his natural capability. Intellectual work enables the individual and social realization of man on all levels of human existence. Therefore it appears as a basis of all well-functioning societies, families and indi-viduals, as a source and measure of their importance and eminence, as a crucial factor that creates human personality. A mistaken understanding of intellectual work leads to mistaken behaviors such as pretentious attitude, disrespect of others, and avoidance of job.
