The article analyzes historical epistemology and the notion of historical a priori. French historical epistemology appears in a narrow sense as a tradition within French philosophy. I will consider the tradition of historical epistemology not as a relativistic approach towards history and philosophy of science, but as a strategy against the  standard view on normativity and legitimation of knowledge.
