One of the most interesting and still actual problems in the field of comparative religion is the nature of Persian dualism and its implication in the Zoroastrian concept of end, viewed finally as a tradition of monotheistic tendency. In this article, we present the essence of Zoroastrian dualism, emphasising the fact the very idea of end depends upon this doctrine. Speaking from a technical point of view, comprehending the doctrine of dualism in Zoroastrianism, that is a moral-ontological dualism, we relevate its manifestation in the choice of the two spirits (entities), Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu, and the human choice in life, which generates cosmic consequences.
