Summary/Abstract: One of the most obsessing and universal symbols of mankind, the labyrinth has a complex history which mirrors the variety of meanings related to its symbolic dimension. Either embraced as a metaphor for the human condition, or rejected as an expression of the obscurity, the labyrinth, its physical appearance and especially its primordial attributes inspired approaches within categories of knowledge as different as philosophy, literature, mathematics, physics, or arts. The article examines the evolution of the symbol throughout its long existence, as well as the way it influenced the evolution of thought itself.
