The following paper offers a view on the concepts of gift, offering and forgiveness in relation with the community started by the being-with-the-other-in-the-world. This community appears in the experience of alterity relations where hospitality, which is seen as understanding the responsibility towards the other, implies the living of the politics of difference. This idea recovers the philosophical contributions of Emmanuel Levinas, Jacques Derrida, jean-Luc Nancy, among others.
