Educational Philosophy and Theory 45 (4):436-447 (2013)

This article explores a significant question, implicit in Kafka?s novel Metamorphosis, explicitly asked by Rorty: ?Can I care about a stranger?? Alphonso Lingis?s view is adopted to overcome a mainstream belief that there is a distinction between my community and the stranger?s community, or us community and the community of those who have nothing in common. His view is thus beneficial to reveal the in-depth paradoxical meaning in the relationship between the stranger and me: I am the stranger and the stranger is me. Therefore, to care about the stranger is to care about myself
