Open peer commentary on the article “Visual Representation in the Wild: Empirical Phenomenological Investigation of Visual-spatial Working Memory in a Naturalistic Setting” by Aleš Oblak. Abstract: I critically examine possible advantages of the introduction of a “naturalistic” setting to empirical phenomenological inquiry. As an alternative, I suggest taking the sum of factors influencing the outcome of research (including the impact of observation and research setting) as an inevitable constitutive characteristic of any research approach. I maintain that such a sum can be experienced and therefore researched. Only through understanding the characteristics of the research approach, can we arrive at a full understanding of its results.
