But Emile Meyerson, the epis temologist as historian, could not find a more rigorous test of his conclusions from historical learning than the interpretation of Einsteins work, unless perhaps he were to turn from the classical revolution of Einsteins relativity to the non-classical quantum theory. Meyerson captures our sympathy in all his writings: .

. . the role of the epistemologist is . . . in following the development of science (250)- the study of the evolution of reason leads us to see that man does not experience himself reasoning . . . which is carried on unconsciously, and as the summation of his empirical studies of the works and practices of scientists, reason .

. . behaves in an altogether predict able way: . . . first by making the consequent equivalent to the antecedent, and then by actually denying all diversity in space (202). If logic - and to Meyerson the epistemologist is logician - is to understand reason, then logic proceeds a posteriori. And so we are faced with an empirically based Par menides, and, as we shall see, with an ineliminable irrational within science. Meyersons story, written in 1924, is still exciting, 60 years later.
