This article aims to reflect on the foundation of education from a movement of thought that is oriented on finite. For this he takes categories such as Heideggerian Dasein, mainly the existential being-for-death, and Sartrean for-himself, which, with all its nuances, take the being from its own forgetfulness and allow a pedagogical reflection that welcomes finite as an alternative to maintain the open state of existence. Through a hermeneutical exercise, some concepts of existential philosophy were linked to a diagnosis of education on the horizon of forgetting being, envisioning in turn an exercise of foundation, which broadens the horizon to think about it and transform it.
