About Ernst Cassirer

  • Ernst Alfred Cassirer (; German: ['????nst ka'si???]; July 28, 1874 – April 13, 1945) was a German philosopher.
  • Trained within the Neo-Kantian Marburg School, he initially followed his mentor Hermann Cohen in attempting to supply an idealistic philosophy of science.

  • His most famous work is the Philosophy of Symbolic Forms (1923–1929).
