The guest.

“As though (I’m taking a risk and improvising this interpretation) hospitality led to the end of the social bond for the hospitable city, which, by giving up on itself, as it were, by dissolving itself, abdicates into the hands of the guest who becomes sovereign. This is also the move from beast to what is proper to man.”
