The paper presents an existential theme in a human life, especially in relation to lifelong learning. It means the paper emphasizes the educational context, i.e. an intergenerational comparison of respondents who are actively engaged in the learning process. The subject of the pilot survey is a subjective perception of the sense of life through the prism of two generations with a focus on seniors. The seniors are active students of the University of the Third Age. The second generation is represented by younger adults who are university students of bachelor's degree of full-time form of study. The aim of the paper is to find out how seniors and younger adults perceive the sense of life subjectively, whether there are any differences between their perceptions and in favour of which of the generations. The research tool applies “the sense of life test” items according to Crumbaugh and Maholick.
