Hereditary faults........................

Nietzsche pointed out that the 'hereditary fault of all philosophers' is to base themselves on man at a particular period of time and then turn this into an eternal truth.  So I will make do with stating that boredom is a very serious phenomenon that affects many people.  Aristotle insisted that virtue is not natural, but it is not unnatural either.  The same applies to boredom.
