Being-in-the-world is an existential concept which was first introduced by Martin Heidegger. It refers to a state of living with a highly meaningful orientation. This philosophy further holds that this kind of existence aims to achieve personal growth. Heidegger emphasized that each human being has a unique destiny to fulfill in this world. For instance, a student realizes that he is a young and empowered individual who is meant to hone his particular skills for the betterment of his own as well as others' current functioning.
