[Autom. eng. transl.] The article is devoted to the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, which is read from an unusual perspective, namely from that of the decision in their relationship to the topic ›time‹. First, it is clarified under which framework conditions philosophy is authorized to speak about myths. The second part is devoted to the negative meaning of myth as a kind of vague, alienating intellectual construction: there are indeed unacceptable myths about the decision, unacceptable because they are incompatible with the experience of the ego. Against this background, a philosophical examination of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydike is made.
