Phenomenology is the study of what appears to the mind, from a first-person, subjective point of view.

Contemporary scholar Georges Dreyfus described phenomenology as:

A discipline which seeks to provide a description of our experience from the first person perspective.[1]

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy provides the following definition:

Phenomenology studies structures of conscious experience as experienced from the first-person point of view, along with relevant conditions of experience. The central structure of an experience is its intentionality, the way it is directed through its content or meaning toward a certain object in the world.[2]
