"IN ORDER TO SEE THE WORLD,WE MUST BREAK WITH OUR FAMILIAR OF ACCEPTANCE OF IT"

In context

cateogory:-The modern World Philosophy

Branch:-Epistemology

approach:-Phenomenology




The idea that philosophy begins with our ability to wonder at the world goes back as far as ancient Greece. Usually, we take our everyday lives for granted, but Aristotle claimed that if we want to understand the world more deeply, we have to put aside our familiar acceptance of things. And nowhere, perhaps, is this harder to do than in the realm of our experience. After all, what could be more reliable than the facts of direct perception?

If we take some interest and look more closely at our experience of the world, and question our everyday assumptions. This puts us in the tradition known as Phenomenology, an approach to Philosophy.
