  The reality of holism - Peter Morrell
Science as a worldview entirely regards events through this 'conceptual filter' of reductionism, named parts and their interactions in mechanisms or causal chains.
Phenomenology attempts to view things more directly in their pure, holistic functioning, avoiding, as far as possible, the use of conceptual overlays like parts, names and mechanisms, with which science is so manifestly obsessed.
Thus, it cuts across the accepted pathways and mechanisms science has created and which are deemed by most educated people to be REAL, I mean real in some absolute sense, as opposed to physical or observable.
