The Song of the Sirens: between myth and reality

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: myth, the sacred, Sirens, T.W. Adorno, F. Kafka.

Starting from the space of the myth in the sense of a place which, epistemologically, is not, the difference between myth and sacred and hence between myth and dogma is stressed so as to treat the episode of Ulysses and the Sirens as a paradigm as read by Adorno and Kafka. In that way it was established that the space of the myth as such is not since it must be understood as a differential element capable of guaranteeing the passage from meaning to non-meaning.
