Summary/Abstract: The author decided to focus this research project on the issue of destruction in the academic development not in order to brand the evil existing in a certain environment, institution or an occupational group. One of her motives was the desire and the necessity to reveal the stumbling blocks in the academic development in the form of “artificial obstacles”, created by jealous individuals, which strain the relationships and complicate the progress of academic career for others, especially as regards the practice of unequal treatment of employees (not always in the form of mobbing, but relatively often – as distributive inequality). Among other motives for focusing this research on jealousy was the author’s concern and worry for the quality of life of researchers as well as the quality of their occupational activity (dynamism of individual academic development). The aim of this study, whose results are hereby published, was to fathom the opinions of academics (researchers and academic teachers) concerning the symptoms, types and conditions, as well as ways of preventing chronic jealousy in this occupational group. Increased and long-term jealousy, manifested most often in the form of hostile behavior towards other employees has come to be considered as an inhibitor of scientific development, that is to say a factor that makes it difficult both for the person who feels jealous and for the person who becomes the object of jealousy, to carry on a relatively normal occupational life. The structure of this monograph (250 pages) contains the answers to the research problems and outlines how these answers were reached. Apart from the table of contents and a detailed introduction (which justifies the undertaken scope of the studied problems, describes the methodological and organizational foundations for the study and presents the structure itself of the monograph), the work contains 7 chapters closely related as regards the studied subject matter, the end, bibliography, personal index, a summary with key words and a note on the author.
