The French philosopher Jean-François Lyotard, although he was a pro­fessed postmodernist, did not hesitate to call the “Mediterranean myth” a great meta-narrative of European culture. For centuries, the legacy of Greco-Roman antiquity built a coherent axiological and esthetic system, elaborated with new content-especially Christian ethics-but also, for example, with the influences of the multicultural Levantine orient. The coherent, though non-uniform “myth” returned under many guises, with the rhythms of subsequent historical epochs. Is it relevant today and if so how? In the rapidly globalizing contemporary world, is the symbolically understood Mediterranean Sea still a point of reference? Finally-recall­ing the title of this issue-should we perceive it as a cultural “center of the world” or only as a periphery?
