Otherness, Living, Caring, Philosophy


This article outlines some existential concepts and socio-affective self, of others and nature on the altered perspective of Hannah Arendt (2010a, 2010b, 1997) and Leonardo Boff (1991, 1999, 2000) in their usual representations in everyday life. From the point of view of the analysis of the Cartesian world view, the self that is considering in the foreground in the face of the other and the world, representations and set up all show that there is always from the perspective of the self, the ego cogitans, egocentrism. This article urges readers to invite everyone to rethink this rather artificial logic governing human relations from Western, especially the Middle Ages, and it has shown injustices from that imbalance of meanings and judgments in the face of otherness, which bring in ourselves.
