Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on hesitation as an anthropological mode, as a psychological state taken in its everyday pragmatic understanding. Usually hesitation is seen as a ‘battle of motives’ on the stage of consciousness with a hindrance in decision making in gen eral or in case of complicated problematic situation According to the main thesis of the text hesitation is paradoxically engendered not only by ‘selective deficiency’, not only by the difficulty of choice but also by reluctance to make it. Namely, hesitation displays not only its deterministic but also, so to speak, its ‘wave’ logic according to ehich it is marked by the intention of the self not to loose the alternatives, to keep the ‘packet’ of coexisting possibilities open.
