    Abstract:
    Comentamos en este artículo la figura de los cíclopes en Homero y en Vico, leyéndola como un arquetipo cultural y psicológico de la sociedad protohumana. Los dos aspectos complementarios del mito (como tradición cultural que se remonta a la prehistoria, y como estructura psicológica, referida a la socialización y al desarrollo psicológico individual) convergen en un origen ontofilogenético común; se refuerzan mutuamente, y proporcionan una consciencia cultural intuitiva de la realidad de la evolución mental y cultural, y de los lazos existentes entre el mundo humano y el animal. _________________________________________________________________________________ English Abstract: This paper comments on the figure of the cyclopes in Homer and in Vico, read as a cultural and psychological archeype of protohuman society. The two complementary aspects of the myth (as a cultural tradition harking back to prehistory and as a psychological structure, referring to socialization and individual psychological development) point out to a common ontophylogenetic origin; they reinforce each other, and provide an intuitive cultural awareness of the reality of the evolution of mind and culture, and of the link between the human and the animal world.
