Reality, in its widest sense, includes all there is, whether it is observable, accessible or understandable by science, philosophy or any other system of analysis.
In a more restricted way: Reality is that portion of ultimate reality which is accessible to scientific and philosophical observation, investigation and theoretical interpretation. Some portion of ultimate reality may lie beyond our scope to examine or even imagine. The subset of reality open to scientific and philosophical effort is defined culturally and socially and is less than the total set of phenomena potentially available, see socially constructed reality.
