  Abstract:  The Nonviolent Coexistence of Myths and the Relativization of the Available World. The equal justification of mythical truth is seen by Culianu as a curse for mankind. The consequence of this fact is the violence manifested in order to impose a certain truth, the available world being disputed by myths in order to make real their own type of world. A solution is that one chosen, as it seems, by the contemporary age, by underlining the affirmation of individuality and relativizing world so much that it becomes inconsistent. One of the outcomes is a fragmentary and superficial self. The other solution proposes to set up new worlds so that competition is to disappear.
