Summary/Abstract: The main purpose of the article is to reconstruct scientific meaning of the term ofcrisis. The text begins with a short reference to the latest financial breakdown of 2008. Because of the collapse of Lehman Brothers Bank, since October 2008 the term crisis has been widely used in public and academic discourse. In recent years, research into economical collapse has become very popular. The addressed issue is a part of many scientific books and scholar analysis. Simultaneously, the term of crisis is often used in everyday life – as a general idea of crash and devastation. Despite its popularity, the phrase ‘crisis’ is indefinite. Therefore providing an academic definition of this phenomenon presents the major difficulty. To solve this problem, several accredited theoretical points of view on crisis may be synthesized.
