L'éthique, ici, ne vient pas en supplément à une base existentielle préalable ; c'est dans l'éthique entendue comme responsabilité que se noue le noeud même du subjectif. [...] L'humanité dans l'être historique et objectif, l. a. percée même du subjectif, du psychisme humain, dans son originelle vigilance ou dégrisement, c'est l'être qui se défait de sa situation d'être : le dés-intéressement. C'est ce que veut dire le titre du livre : Autrement qu'être. Etre humain, cela signifie : vivre comme si l'on n'était pas un être parmi les êtres. »
