The text presents a critical question on the concept of “person” starting from the current political situation characterized from a wave of migration that tests the democratic resources of the West and that seems to impose the renunciation of the classic ideal of "good life". Making use of the reflection of Judith Butler, who thinks human being from vulnerability, exposure and dependence, the author proposes a rethinking of the "person" who claims to come from a sort of deconstruction of the "sublime" that presents itself in the moral sphere, in particular in the Critique of the practical reason of Kant, in the form of a doubling of the idea of "life" (animal life and moral life) and of "anesthesia" of the animal aspect of life. Pointing, through Butler, on the vulnerability and fragility of life, the author finds a root, also classical, in which the names of Sophocles, Pascal, Leopardi stand out, where "moral personality" can not be separated from awareness active of weakness and exposure.
