The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms


This title will ship upon release.

Ernst Cassirer occupies a unique place in Twentieth century philosophy. A great liberal humanist, his oeuvre spans the history of philosophy, intellectual history, aesthetics, epistemology and the philosophy of culture. It anticipates the renewed interest in the origins of analytic and continental philosophy and the divergent paths taken by the major 'logicist' and existential traditions. The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms is Cassirer's most important work. It was first published in German between 1923 and 1929.This major new translation in three volumes, the first for over fifty years, brings a monumental contribution to philosophy to a new generation of students and scholars.
