Phe•nom•e•nol•o•gy fĭ-nŏm″ə-nŏl′ə-jē►n. “A philosophy or method of inquiry based on the premise that reality consists of objects and events as they are perceived or understood in human consciousness and not of anything independent of human consciousness.”

A movement based on this, originated about 1905 by Edmund Husserl. In Kantian terminology, a division of the metaphysics of nature which determines motion and rest merely in respect to the mode of representing them as phenomena of sense.
