Phenomenology and the social construction of crime are viewed as compatible philosophical systems. The social construction of any phenomena reveals a specific phenomenology that is co-constitutive of subject experience and social world. As such, the phenomenology of the social construction of crime reveals a specific manifestation of the epistemological configurations of lived-experience and social world as this relates to its underlying ontological structure.
