This is a short survey reviewing first the Fourier transform on a Riemannian symmetric space G/K of non-compact type, then on a compact symmetric space U/K. For dual symmetric spaces G/K and U/K the author asks whether inversion formulas for G/K and U/K are analytic continuation of each other. At last some results concerning semisimple symmetric spaces are briefly described.
