Ernst Cassirer - Kant, Hegel, & Heidegger

source: Philosophical Overdose    2015年5月16日
Michael Inwood gives a talk on Ernst Cassirer in connection with Immanuel Kant, G.W.F. Hegel, and Martin Heidegger. Ernst Cassirer was a German philosopher heavily influenced by the work of Kant. As a Neo-Kantian idealist, Cassirer took concepts and the mind to be fundamental and primary over material bodies, and understood truth in terms of internal coherence rather than as correspondence to an independent external reality. His focus was on epistemology and science, as well as culture. Cassirer is perhaps most famous for his philosophy of symbolic forms.
This talk was given at a conference called "After Kant".
