The secret of Being and Time and of its constant cultural and philosophical presence lies in its extraordinary hermeneutic richness. Being and Time offers us a precise scan of the ethical and moral conscience of our time. It does not develop a philosophical theory like so many others, rather it faces the challenge of thoroughly reflecting upon the dilemma that is constantly present in philosophy, namely the question of human beings and their relation to being in general. From this point of view, I would like to consider the possibility of reading this fundamental work of Heidegger as an ethics of care, that is, a book that promotes a cultivation of the self and of others.
