PHENOMENOLOGICAL ANALYSIS

an approach to psychology wherein cognitive encounters are depicted and examined without theoretical presuppositions or assumption as to their causes or consequences. Typically, this approach will prefer viewing and depiction over study and perception- it will also try to comprehend an individual's experience from the viewpoint of that individual, instead of from a more abstract theoretical perspective.

PHENOMENOLOGICAL ANALYSIS: "Phenomenological analysis is not highly regarded by all in the psychology profession, as most individuals' thoughts are rooted in science, where causes and evidence of such are generally desired or required."
