Snippet from Video
In philosophy, the word ‘phenomenon’ is used to describe the way in which things appear to our senses.
Philosophies such as phenomenology put forward by Husserl (1859-1939) take as their starting point the view that we can never know what the world is actually like, but must rely on what our senses tell us about it.
This A-level Sociology video explores how phenomenology has been applied by Schutz to society.
This video includes concepts and sociologists such as:
- Natural Attitude
- Berger and Luckmann
