We can find a few words of Heidegger on ethics and he says that ethical questions have no place in his discussions. Therefore, the place of ethics in his thought is very complicate and unclear, and this has led to different interpretations about his moral perspective. However, it the can be found discussions in his works that apart from ontology issues have also ethical aspects, such as authenticity and being-with. On the other hand, Heidegger has not definitely Kant''''''''s position on Ethics, but his little contribution nevertheless is not ignorable. This article will answer to two fundamental questions in Heidegger''''''''s thought: first, what is the ethics place in Heidegger’s philosophy? And then, based on the given answer of this question, we examine the question that “what is the Heidegger''''''''s position on ethics?”
