Conclusion Husserl's philosophy of science has often been faulted as dogmatic, unduly informed by a foundationalist epistemology. We found such charges to be unjustified on two counts. First, although Husserl was throughout his career an adherent of the strong foundationalist account of science, he limited the validity of that account to the purely deductive sciences.

They will never count as bodies of knowledge in the strict sense; although, as bodies of belief, they may be perfectly rational. The main reason why the natural sciences fall short of knowledge is that natural bodies are, for Locke, collocations of simple ideas between which we so Essay, IV,ii, 6. " Essay, IV,xiv,1. 52 Essay, IV,xv,5. SCIENCE IN HUSSERL AND THE TRADITION 17 can intuit no necessary relations. This is because the simple ideas composing the naturalsubstances-secondaryqualities for the most part-are dependent upon the primary qualities of the imperceptible material parts of natural substances.

It is not to show that the fact itself is necessary, but only that it necessarily follows from certain given antecedent conditions. What is necessary is not the consequent, but the consequence. The diagonal between the opposite corners of my desk just happens to be ofa certain length. It could have been otherwise. Its being that length is a wholly contingent matter. But, given that the corners of my desk are right angles together with the length of its sides, it necessarily follows that the length of the diagonal is precisely what it happens to be; it does not follow, however, that the diagonal is necessarily that length.
