ETYM Phenomenon + -logy: cf. French phénoménologie.
1. A philosophical study of human consciousness, or of the mind's perception of certain concepts.
2. A description, history, or explanation of phenomena.
Study of phenomena.
The philosophical perspective, founded by the German philosopher Edmund Husserl, that concentrates on phenomena as objects of perception (rather than as facts or occurrences that exist independently) in attempting to examine the ways people think about and interpret the world around them. It has been practiced by the philosophers Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty.
In contrast to positivism or “scientific” philosophy, phenomenology sees reality as essentially relative and subjective, and uses such tools as ethnomethodology and symbolic interactionism to focus on the structure of everyday life.
