Martin Heidegger
In Heideggers analysis, human existence is exhibited in care. Care is Similarities of the three contexts

understood in terms of finite temporality, which reaches with death. Death is a Summary (where will all these lead to)
possibility that happens; all possibilities are evaluated in this light, when one lives with
a resoluteness, which brings unity and wholeness to the scattered self. Eternity does
not enter the picture, for wholeness is attainable within humanitys finite temporality.

Jean-Paul Sartre
The person, first of all exists, encounters himself, surges up in the world, and
defines himself afterward. The person is nothing else but that what he makes of
himself. The person is provided with a supreme opportunity to give meaning to ones
life. In the course of giving meaning to ones life, one fills the world with meaning.
