This article develops a phenomenological hermeneutics of the relationship between history, meaning, existence, and eternity, on the basis afforded by Jan Patocka’s philosophy of history. First, it outlines the notions of meaning and history. Second, it attempts to make clear the degree in which one can find in the constitution of human existence the condition of possibility for a problematic and concurrent meaning of history. Finally, “existence in truth” is analized as the result of a correlation between existentiality and eternity, and the interpellation of eternity is understood as the ultimate origin of meaning
