Summary/Abstract: The Other is never reduced to the Same, thus remaining unknowable, outside of the totality of the Same. The encounter with the Other calls ecology into question. The „I” can no longer live in the fantasy of a unique possession of the world. The power and freedom of the Same are called into question. The Other cannot be possessed, resists enjoyment, and, as the I encounters this Other, it is called back to the meaning of its freedom, a freedom which is founded by the Other and which, in this encounter, is called to responsibility and obligation towards the Other as genuine freedom.
