Thesis is concentrated around existential hermeneutics of human finitude within Heidegger's undertaking in fundamental ontology. It is difficult to find any other more relevant philosophical apprehension of death in the contemporary philosophy. Phenomenology enabled a new consideration of forgotten philosophical issues and brought everyday human experience to the center of philosophy with the purpose of attaining ever greater understanding of ourselves and the world that surrounds us. The founding phenomenon which mediates existential analytics consists of Dasein's openness toward its own Being and the Being itself. Question of finitude is derived out of the question of the meaning of Being and Existence. Approach to the problem of human finitude is enabled through existential and ontological understanding of the Being toward death (Sein zum Tode). With the recognition of how death shows itself as a phenomenon we gained existential and ontological conception of death. Authentically understood, death is man's own most, non-relational, certain and indefinite possibility which cannot be outstripped. Thesis aimed at the deeper understanding of finitude by examining aporias (impossibilities) inherent to the phenomenon of death itself. The goal was to present death as a phenomenon despite its resistance towards presenting and conceptualizing within human experience. Death is the inevitable possibility which gives human existence its final meaning.
