Human being in between endless desire and care

The main object philosophy deals with from its beginning is being. Human being, because of his peculiar connection with being, is characterized by an endless deside that cannot properly be fullfilled. Consciousness is indeed twofold, being composed by 1) its formal comprehension of being (Aristotle); and 2) differing from God the feature of finitude: being is in fact, for consciousness, not somenthing that can be grasped (and so human being has an endless desire). The contradiction between these two levels of consciousness is what produces unconscious.
