Habitability is a concept that arises from “Building Dwelling Thinking”, a text first presented by Martin Heidegger in Darmstadt in 1951.

In this way it happens in the work of art, we inhabit its creation.

For Judith Butler, vulnerability is inherent to the human condition and refers to its biological and social interdependence. She calls it “precariousness”.
Phallogocentrism is a neologism of Jacques Derrida, it is “the erection of the paternal logos”. The discourse of man and the phallus as a privileged signifier.

Precariousness is the term used by Judith Butler that refers to situations systematically and differentially induced by political and economic variables.

I propose to speak of êthos/hollow in the following sense: I understand êthos as a way of life, of inhabiting the world in a shared way; hollow is the proposal of new possible habitabilities without hatred and misogyny.
