In Alfred Schutz's phenomenological sociology, the concept of "stock of knowledge" is fundamental and, I believe, has important implications for teaching. This essay will first analyze Schutz's notion of the stock of knowledge, both its (static) elements and functions and its (dynamic) process, continuation, interruption, and limitation about the acquisition of knowledge. Secondly, the essay will explain the clear relevance of this "stock of knowledge" to teaching practice. It is hoped that this study will help to make clear how teaching practice may be improved through a theoretical discourse that integrates the phenomenological sociology with the cognitive psychology.

Keywords:Alfred Schutz , phenomenological sociology, stock of knowledge , teaching practice
