Abstract

The three words living, building and recycling are linked by a logical thread that comes from the philosophical thought and the theory of the German philosopher Martin Heidegger. Through the philosophical approach, Heidegger wants to understand what living, how living and building are linked to each other. First of all, he analyses the etymological connection between these two words: living and building. The origin of the German term "bauen", which means to build, is "buan" that it specifies the action to remain, stay and, therefore, live. It turns out that building means living, understood as a symbol of man's experience on Earth, of “being there” as Heidegger would say. According to the philosopher, building is a thoughtful action of man towards the Earth, that it allows him to manifest his existence and to protect his space. The perception of living is not just a personal experience that must be lived in a subjective way or shared with others, but it must be a teaching that must be passed on to new generations with approaches that change over time, with rhythms that follow the mutations of the living. Living the Earth doesn’t mean dominating it or exploiting it without limits, it’s a synonymous with protecting the built and, in general, defending the Earth. One of the ways to protect the environment is to reduce the availment of natural sources, giving new life to the materials used. Therefore, from the philosopher's thought, we understand that the binomial "living, building" can be completed with “recycling”.
