Points to take away:

  • Phenomenology  is “the science of phenomena” or the study of everything that gives our lives meaning and is perhaps the most important philosophical tradition of the 20th century.

  • As observers, we want to analyze what is familiar to people — so familiar that it structures our behavior without ever being something we think about. It feels so normal and true, but when we look at it directly, it often is rather odd.
