This chapter discusses the relations between Husserl and later French authors such as Jean Cavailles and Michel Foucault, who transform Husserl's transcendental project into a form of linguistic analysis. It argues that, in the hands of these French critics, the overall form of Husserl's account of sedimentation is preserved, but the history of science is explicitly denied. The result is that while the sedimentation of scientific ontologies is an essential part of these French critics' approach, Foucault in particular insists that the structures in question are linguistic as opposed to mental.

Keywords:   linguistic analysis, Jean Cavailles, Michel Foucault, French philosophy of science, sedimentation
