Modern culture has often shifted generation from ontological, anthropological and ethical fundamental categories, or has maintained it, but in the sense of idealistic self-handling. But the subjective identity and, subsequently, the human ability to make fruitful experience, require generation on behalf of others to be activated: thanks to the beneficial-virtuous relationships we gain our fundamental abilities (cognitive, reflexive, deliberative, expressive, dialogical, technical, etc.). In short, generativity is the anthropologically synthetic dimension, on the basis of which it is possible to judge human relations, which are always generative or de-generative, always institutive or destituent. In spite of the sentence according to which "my freedom ends where yours begins", it must instead be said that "my freedom exists because there is yours, and if yours is beneficial, it also makes sense, and primarily, in view of the generative mutually beneficial relationship with yours".
