Abstract: Let $R$ be a commutative Noetherian ring. We study $R$-modules, and complexes of such, with excellent duality properties. While their common properties are strong enough to admit a rich theory, we count among them such, potentially, diverse objects as dualizing complexes for $R$ on one side, and on the other, the ring itself. In several ways, these two examples constitute the extremes, and their well-understood properties serve as guidelines for our study; however, also the employment, in recent studies of ring homomorphisms, of complexes ``lying between'' these extremes is incentive.
