The purpose of the text is trying to recognize the results of the influence of the political economical background on the manner of thinking about the work and the lack of the work. By analysing meanings of the work and the lack of the work the author also tries (indirectly) to place them in the man's surrounding and find values that are connected with possesing or not-possesing work. The text consists of two basic parts (structurally there are five), the first invokes the ideas of the discourse formulated by Ernesto Laclau that constitute the theoretical-methodological basis for further considerations. The second part of the work tries to show the selected indications of thinking about work and the lack of the work in the perspective of post-industrial economy and the problem of labour market and education interrelation.
