The author of the contribution reasons about circumstances under which a dialogue is possible. The world of the developmental acceleration in which we all take part, cannot do without seeing the alway increasing problems clearly — this being the sole possibility to act as a starting point to attempts to solve them. Such a starting point is seen just in a dialogue which at the same time represents a meaningful way of any existence in the world. Actually the dialogue is blocked by a number of obstacles. The mojor ones are seen in the educational tradition, in the loyality to axilogical demands, in the worldview rigidity, and in the anxictties that a conflict of roles in the same individual might arise.

One of the main conditions of a dialogue is the art of listening to.
