13 On Phenomenological Method: The Path of Dorion Cairns RICHARD ZANER In Section 5 of his Cartesian Meditations, Husserl remarks: Because the sciences aim at predications that express com- pletely and with evident fitness what is beheld pre-predicative- ly, it is obvious that I must be careful also about this aspect of scientific evidence. Owing to the instability and ambiguity of common language and its much too great complacency about completeness of expression, a new legitimation of significations by orienting them according to accrued insights, and a fixing , of words as expressing the significations thus legitimated. That . too we account as part of our normative principle of evidence, . which we shall apply consistently from now 1 ' There are only two matters which I want to call to attention in this passage-both of which will help me focus on several aspects in Dorion Cairns's work, especially his reflections and clarifications of Husserlian phenomenological methodology. First, that "normative principle of evi- dence" itself; second, the issue concerning how we are to regard the need . to "fix" the language we use to express legitimated significations, when that language is apparently so unsuited for this critical task.
