Investigating the paths of ethics —ethics of politics, ethics of philosophy—, contemporary thought has been inquiring for a long into several tasks and aims, concerning the same practice of philosophy. Very lucidly, Emmanuel Levinas started from the criticism on philosophy as power ideology. In the background of the being qua totality, a plurality of existents competes among themselves to impose one’s right to be. Philosophy is the awareness of the fact that the unwinding of being is determined by conflict, which (...) is its impulse. Nevertheless, as a critical practice, philosophy consists in the capacity for unmasking the terrible evidence of the all-determining conflict. Philosophy is the defence tool enabling us not to be victims of illusion. Just because of that, contemporary ethics invites us to reconsider, with ever greater critical care, the connection me-you. After a careful analysis of the considerations on this subject by some thinkers in our time —from Heidegger to Sartre, from Jaspers to Levinas, from Guardini to Piovani and Fornet Betancourt— this essay detect the possibility of a way out from the aporias, inevitably involving the connection to otherness —with the resulting impossibility to usurp the exteriority of one another, who is kept safe by an insurmountable transcendency— in a new idea of Hybridisation . It has not to do with ethnic or racial Hybridisation; the Hybridisation we refer to is anything but the idea about the existence of a social, cultural, linguistic, ethnic starting condition, neither of an homogeneous set generating a heterogeneous phenomenon by the meeting with another set. Instead, it could be considered as a ‘virtue’, that is, «sharing an existence without essence», a condition that allow us for escaping from the twofold trap of bringing the other into the boundaries of the supremacy of the same, or of falling into mere crossbreeding forms.
