In this paper some special features of phenomenology which enable them to be a possible ground for a research program in economics, complementing previous
mainstream results, are reviewed. The potential fruits and their importance will
also be highlighted. The direct purpose is to study what scientific problems have been
hidden beyond the territory of mainstream economics and what scientific methods
are available for economists to scrutinize an area mainly ignored, that is, the unquestioned
aspects of our socio-economic reality. Along these lines we can get to findings
that can complement the traditional research directions of mainstream economics.
Keywords : phenomenology, reality, abstraction, types, experimental economics.
