English term or phrase: pre-understandings
It must be noted that all people, whether human science researchers or not, approach discussions of lived experience with some notions of their own. In the context of phenomenology, these preconceived ideas are not brought by the researcher to the participants. Nevertheless, in order to best explore the lived experience descriptions of others, phenomenological researchers must become aware of their pre-understandings. The traditional phenomenological requirement is a certain suspension of pre-understandings, a process Husserl termed bracketing (Creswell, 1998, p. 52; Osborne, 1990, p. 81; van Manen, 1990, p. 47). Although this term has become standard in the field, its original definition of setting aside pre-judgments may be misleading. van Manen noted that the most effective way to manage pre-judgments is to make them explicit and then not to attempt to forget them forever, but rather to be aware that they are being held aside to allow other data to enter.

przedrozumienia
Explanation:
Nieświadome przyjmowanie tej perspektywy przez badaczy jest powodem charakterystycznego dla nich braku krytycznej postawy wobec przedrozumienia pochodzącego z ich własnego społecznego otoczenia,ostatecznie zaś nadaje ściśle konformistyczny charakter postulowanym przez nich oddziaływaniom edukacyjnym.

I further argue that adopting such a perspective makes educators characteristically uncritical of pre-understandings originating in their own social environment and thus governing their thought, and ultimately renders their pedagogies a grossly conformist, antiintellectual, let alone anti-pedagogical enterprise.
