Abstract

23 Heidegger and the Question of Ethics CHARLES E. SCOTT Vanderbilt Uniaersity ioog, VOJ.1Óç, VOJ.1Óç, AND THE QUESTION OF ETHICS The word £0Ea in Homer was used to name the places where animals belong. The animal's t80ç is the place to which it returns, the place that is its habitat, its dwelling place. If the animal cannot return to its ioog, a violation of its particular order occurs, as when a wild horse is hobbled in a stall and cannot return to its own environment.

He holds his head high, and his mane leaps on his shoulders on both sides. His knees swiftly bear him, trusting his splendor, through the É8Ea and pastures (vop6g) of horses."' In the Odyssey, Homer speaks of £0Ea to which pigs, specifically sows, return after grazing. In both uses of ioea one finds the connotation of appropriateness for particular animals. In the instance of the horse running free back to his t8Ea and voR6g, he has
