I shall add only a few critical remarks. The breakthrough to the transcendental subjectivity is supposed to be the road to uncover the foundation on which all scientific validity rests. I ask the question: can the reductive phenomenological analysis ever attain its goal, namely, to go behind scientific, and pre-scientific, validity and mystification? I shall offer three suggestions. First: The phenomenological analysis is confronted with the fact of reification (Husserl does not use this term) .

There is no a priori necessity for a language to be organized in this highly specific and most peculiar way. There is no sense of 'simplicity' in which this design for language can be intelligibly described as 'most simple'. Nor is there any content to the claim that this design is somehow 'logical'. Furthermore, it would be quite impossible to argue that this structure is simply an accidental consequence of 'common descent'. Quite apart from questions of historical accuracy, it is enough to point out that this structure must be rediscovered by each child who learns the language.

The fact remains that humanism is still today an ideology, a higher value which little affects the inhuman character of reality. The question with which I would like to conclude is this: Is philosophy entirely innocent of this development, or does it perhaps share the hubris of science? Does it share the reluctance to examine its own real foundation and function and is it therefore equally guilty of failing in the task of Theoria} of Reason-to promote the realization of humanitas?
