On the background of several examples of the demolishing of historical sites in Bratislava the article deals with the structure of human existence as habitation. It examines various kinds of habitation as well as its constitutive relationships. The decrescent public mode of human habitation calls for attention to be paid to pathological changes in public sector and society. Underlined is the necessity for philosophy to enter the public sector in order to separate the essential from the ephemeral.
