Summary/Abstract: The everyday of world phenomenology Ortega y Gasset is analyzed. Everyday world’s phenomenology is described from a “being in this world” perspective. However, everyday world‘s phenomenology does not coincide with just being in this world. A philosophical attitude requires to look at yourself being in this world from “outside”. Thus, reflection of phenomenology’s everyday experience reveals a connection of the world structure with the structure of consciousness. The analysis perfunctoriness and profoundness allows us to understand how the order of things appear to us and is connected with the structures of consciousness. Conclusion: Ortega’s meditations about the everyday world and his example of forest coincide with Edmund Husserl’s cogitations about the method of phenomenology in his book Idea I. To explore the everyday world from a phenomenological perspective, reflection on the phenomenological method is proposed as an approach to the description of the phenomena.
