empirical phenomenological sociology

The empirical phenomenological sociology is the discipline that could have a great impact on the empirical sociologists. Among the different concepts of sociology mentioned above, there are some kinds of sociology that could be classified under empirical phenomenological sociology. For instance, Mannheim’s sociology of knowledge, Weber’s religious sociology, Thomas’s sociology, Garfinkel’s ethnomethodology, and reflective sociology can be regarded as kinds of empirical phenomenological sociology. In this context, one has to keep in mind that, in dealing with sociological facts as products of intentionality, it is necessary to use the method of the sociological phenomenological reduction. Yet besides these concepts of sociology, there are more possibilities to develop the empirical phenomenological sociology. Sociology conceived by A. Giddens is a good example for the further development of the empirical phenomenological sociology which concerns the process of the social construction of reality.
