This text tries to interrogate the possibility of bringing the ethical dimension within the
origin and the thought of being, starting from some of Heidegger’s observations on ethics.
Although he uses the expression “originary ethics”, it is necessary to verify to which extent
ethics, meant as the field of human conduct or human acts, can or must be found
within the space of foundation or even if it can be founded in a ground which pre-exists it.
In this sense, a comparison between ethics and technique is here offered in order to show
how to think on the essence of the latter, meant as man’s originary opening-up to the
world, is radically removed from thinking on ethics meant as a necessary obligation for
self-government which man, in the instability and uncertainty of his condition, simply
cannot do without.
