Philosophy of Symbolic Forms (The) – Three Volume Set (Ernst Cassirer)


The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms is Cassirer’s most important work. It was first published in German in 1923, the third and final volume appearing in 1929. In it Cassirer presents a radical new philosophical worldview – at once rich, creative and controversial – of human beings as fundamentally “symbolic animals”, placing signs and systems of expression between themselves and the world.
