Abstract:This paper is meant to show the difference(s) or similarity (if any) between the concepts of the double/ double personality and the dual/ dualism in what it concerns the Romantics, especially Mihai Eminescu’s work.
On the one hand, the double is nothing else but the Other of the Same or, rather, the Same but divided, as a copy of the original (the second dark Me, the twin brother, the shadow, etc). On the other hand, the dual is a pair, an antinomic one, of two opposite poles which are attracted to one another (angel and demon, life and death, visible and invisible etc).
While there is a complementary attraction with the dual, when we speak about the double there is a destructive attraction. Being dual is something permanent, familiar, whereas being double means meeting the strange guest of ours in dreams, in trance etc. The dual nature is permanent and having double personality is something temporary for the Romantic Self. Moreover, the dual means consistency, the double represents inconsistency, puzzling fragmentation of the Self.
To put it in a nut shell, being dual is something permanent, beneficent attraction, but meeting the Other Me creates rivalry and alienation but not for good.
Therefore, the double is a finite entity, regarding time, and the dual is infinite and thus the concept of the double is not synonymous with the dual.
