The essay’s theme is the border and its significance from a geo-philosophical perspective. Through the analysis of the concept of xenòs, elaborated by Plato in the Laws, the essay goes on to investigate the concept of “humanity” in Edmund Husserl and the concept of “wandering values” in Albert Camus, to conclude, then, with the concept of “border” according to Jean-Luc Nancy. The stranger, far from being undestood as an inaccessible “other” to be annihilated, is here singled out as correlative to one’s own self.

Abstract

The essay’s theme is the border and its significance from a geo-philosophical perspective. Through the analysis of the concept of xenòs, elaborated by Plato in the Laws, the essay goes on to investigate the concept of “humanity” in Edmund Husserl and the concept of “wandering values” in Albert Camus, to conclude, then, with the concept of “border” according to Jean-Luc Nancy. The stranger, far from being undestood as an inaccessible “other” to be annihilated, is here singled out as correlative to one’s own self.
