Abstract

In the field of human experience, some things are essential and indis- pensable. Nonetheless, it is often true that this very essentiality, though evident in daily life, may escape one’s notice and its ontological sig- nificance paradoxically remain unperceived (Heidegger 1962, 69). The phenomenon of care gives crucial proof of this. Care is fundamental in life, even if for a long time Western culture has largely over- looked its significance in human life.
