A text written by a student in a Swedish comprehensive school, during a Biology test, is analyzed using a method based on Husserl's transcendental phenomenology. The method is presented in the article. The analysis results in an explicitation of horizons, which enables an access to the lifeworld (Lebenswelt) opened by the text. In this case, the interplay of school Biology (the school subject Biology) and "everyday life" is visible. The meaning constituted in the encounter with school Biology seems to lack natural science aspects. The visible aspects pertain to the bodily situatedness of a student in school and to the character of school knowledge. The world as constituted by school Biology seems to be a place of disembedded, general people where school is a place of non-learning.
