Ernst Cassirer (1874-1945) German philosopher and historian of ideas, often typed as one of the leading exponents of neo-Kantian thought in the 20th century. Cassirer's major works include The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms (1923-29). Cassirer saw that human beings were above all a symbolizing animals. The whole range of our achievements, science, religion, arts, history, political thought, religion, language - they all are unique parts of our evolutionary process and help us to understand our experience and the world. "Man has, as it were, discovered a new method of adapting himself to his environment. Between the receptor system and the effector system, which are to be found in all animal species, we find in man a third link which we may describe as the symbolic system . This new acquisition transforms the whole of human life. As compared with the other animals man lives not merely in a broader reality; he lives, so to speak, in a new dimension of reality."

Reviews of books by Ernst Cassirer ERNST CASSIRER (1874-1845) was professor in philosophy in Hamburg, Germany, and emigrated in 1934 to the United States living in New York. Cassirer was a member of the Marburg School and studied the history of philosophical problems and thoughts. He believed that modern philosophy has to accept and reflect Einstein's theory of relativity overcoming Kant's philosophy as an answer to Newton's mechanical principles.
An Essay on Man
by Ernst Cassirer
Yale University Press, 1944 In 'An essay on man' Cassirer succinctly outlines the differences between science, mythology and religion, a problem important to all of us. For science literacy cannot be achieved, if we don't understand the limitations of the abstraction and objectification science introduces to man's culture. Science can restrict the subjective qualities of myth and religion, but it cannot destroy their reality, since every human experience has a claim to reality. Cassirer gives the following example. "In our scientific concepts we reduce the differences between two colors .. to a numeric difference [of wavelength]. But it is a very inadequate way of speaking if we declare number to be more real than color. What is really meant is that it is more general. ... But to hypothesize number ... as the ultimate reality, the very essence and substance of things, is a metaphysical fallacy." Science gives an order in thoughts, morality gives an order in action, and art gives an order in the apprehension of appearances. Natural laws are discovered, they do not create reality. The introduction of new classes of numbers does not create new objects but new symbols. Cassirer's text is a lucid exploration of the structures of man's cultural activities. His essay is a tribute to the fact that what ever man does, he converses with himself, rather than with nature, god, or the universe.

12. Review Of Ernst Cassirer,
A 1949 article on this work, by Wilfrid Sellars. Raises various questions about cassirer s analysis of symbolism.
Language and Myth
Language and Myth
Wilfrid S. Sellars
University of Minnesota
Published in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research
This small volume is a translation of Sprache und Mythos , written some twenty-two years ago at a time when the late Professor Cassirer was in the midst of his labors on his monumental Philosophie der Symbolischen Formen . It is an off-shoot of the latter work, and together with his recent Essay on Man , provides the English reader with a first hand account, in relative non-technical terms, of Cassirer's approach to philosophy.
The study opens with a critique of negativistic theories of myth, theories which explain the occurrence of myth in terms of error, and specifically that kind of error which is based on the deficiencies (e.g., ambiguity) of language. Misconceptions of this kind are traced by Cassirer to naive realism, the notion that nature confronts the mind "as something directly and unequivocally given" (p. 6). To obtain a correct understanding of the nature of myth, and indeed, of any phenomenon of the human spirit we must "accept in all seriousness what Kant calls his 'Copernican Revolution' " (p. 8). In Cassirer's argument, however, this Revolution is given a "nominalistic" twist. The forms which bind together the thinking which is the generation of world-for-mind, are no longer the fixed pure schematized categories of Kant, but are instead conceived of as essentially bound up with the symbolism that would ordinarily be said to express them, and, consequently, as sharing in the

PROCESSING NOTES Early History of the Papers: It is unlikely that Cassirer brought all of his papers with him when he came to the United States in the summer of 1941, as he originally planned to stay for only two years. It is also unlikely that the papers were shipped during the war. Thus, it would appear probable that the bulk of Cassirer's papers were shipped to the United States only after his death and that Toni Cassirer or some other family member was responsible for the arrangement of the papers prior to their transfer to Yale University.

Ernst Cassirer, 18741945
01 Jun 2000 14:00 German philosopher and intellectual historian; escaped from the Nazis, first to Oxford, then to Goteborg and finally to Yale. I've only just started to read him, beginning with what was first to hand, namely the historical works, and frankly I'm puzzled. What, exactly, is a "symbolic form"? It seems to have some connection to Kant's ideas about the structures which we necessarily impose upon phenomena; but on the other hand Cassirer sometimes talks about them as though they evolved through time. Also, he speaks of "science" and "myth" as symbolic forms, though I don't think he would have said we have "scientific" or "mythic" perceptions. And did Cassirer believe in noumena? And, on the subject of myths , having read his Myth of the State, which he begins with a summary of his thoughts on what myths are and what they do, all I can tell you is that he thought they had something to do with emotions, could be about any subject at all, and had rituals as their "motor expressions." (Perhaps that was a bad exposition on his part; perhaps I'm just dense.) And just what principles did he employ in historical research? His

18. Waggish: Ernst Cassirer On Art Public And Private
ernst cassirer, The Logic of the Cultural Sciences, Perception of Things, Perception of Expression . Some thoughts. This picture of the artist in society
The artist possesses the strongest will and the strongest capacity for communication. He cannot rest or repose until he has discovered the way to bring to life in others everything that lives in himself. And nevertheless it is just in this continual self-renewing flow of communication that the artist feels himself isolated and thrown back to the limits of his own I. For no individual work that he creates can capture the fullness of this vision that he bears within himself. Always a distressingly felt opposition remains: "outer" and "inner" never completely correspond. But this boundary, which the artist must acknowledge, does not become a limit for him. He continues to create, for he knows that it is only in his creations that he can discover and take possession of his self. He has his world and his true self only in the gestalt that he gives them. Ernst Cassirer, The Logic of the Cultural Sciences," "Perception of Things, Perception of Expression" Some thoughts:
  • This picture of the artist in society is a nice variation on Hegel without all his Whiggish baggage and rationalism.
  • The lack of correspondence of "inner" and "outer" is something not just confronted in art, but in all aspects of our lives.
