Phenomenology is a philosophical approach initially developed by Edward Husserl that centers on understanding consciousness and experience.

This entry outlines key approaches, critiques, and current trends. It draws attention to studies of movement and politics that are generating new possibilities in the anthropological understanding of space and the environment.
