ABSTRACT
"The notion of 'frontier' itself suggests that everything 'in front' of an individual is somehow his border line. " This article presents a historical, exhaustive review of the concept, from natural 'frontiers' (i. e. physical obstacles such as rivers, oceans, mountains, deserts) to mythical or philosophical 'frontiers', and their multiple uses, meanings and interpretations as have been put forward from the scientific point of view.
