Abstract

The more I try to clarify what home is, the less I know anything about it. It slips through my fingers like the air I breathe. It is at once the most familiar, the most common, and the most elusive subject I can think of; utterly concrete and wholly invisible. What I have been trying to understand and discuss through this thesis is how our philosophies—our concepts—of self, shape our politics of ‘us’ and ‘them’, like I have been witnessing them doing in the asylum politics and Willkommenskultur of Germany.
