If the answer is “care,” Heidegger’s interest is nevertheless in the ontological rather than ethical meaning of care, and Dasein’s care is always ultimately for itself, not for others (SZ317–23/BT364 –70: “Care and Selfhood”). In his analysis of dwelling and habitation in Totality and Infinity Levinas points out that “In Being and Time the home does not appear apart from a system of implements,” and there is no one in the house but me (TeI184/TI170).
