Sobre essa hipotese o autor ve com certa desconfianca os pressupostos cassirerianos da religiao como forma simbolica afirmando que a realidade da experiencia da religiosa nao os corrobora sendo que a unica abordagem possivel em Cassirer seria considerar a religiao no quadro geral de uma "filosofia da religiao" e nada mais.
Cassirer refers to this phenomenon as the perception of a "thou" rather than an "it," an animated rather than an objective reality (The Phenomenology 63).
Cassirer aponta, portanto, que o ser humano pode ser apropriadamente definido como um animal symbolicum, para o qual nao so o conhecimento cientifico e um conhecimento simbolico, mas todo conhecimento e toda relacao do homem com o mundo se da no ambito dessas diversas "formas simbolicas".
Leibniz provides a modern explanation that man perceives the world in the way of "apperception of reality," which, in his sense, marks "a new state of consciousness and a new concept of objectivity" (see Cassirer, 1979/1942, p.
Sin embargo, sostener interpretaciones como las de Cassirer y Heidegger, que pretenden fidelidad con Kant y no su simple superacion, importa hacerse cargo de explicar su compatibilidad con los textos del propio Kant, que abogan por la heterogeneidad de las fuentes del conocimiento (Kant habla, segun se ha dicho, de "fuentes fundamentales" con "origen y contenido" diverso).
El presente esfuerzo tiene como proposito la exposicion de la fenomenologia de la expresion desde el punto de vista de Ernst Cassirer.

While Curthoys builds toward asserting a relationship between Ernst Cassirer (chapters five and six) and Hannah Arendt (chapters seven and eight), in the process he seeks to revise our focus regarding each of these thinkers.
A countervailing current, however, has continued to entertain post-Kantian metaphysical concerns of the kind that predated the deconstructionist translation of Heidegger versus Cassirer (or with Husserl), producing the split between historical theory and philosophy of history, with various intermediary figures, such as Frank Ankersmit, spanning between the two; (12) or alternatively producing analytic philosophical accounts of historiography, such as those of Arthur Danto and Patrick Gardiner.
Nonetheless, there are philosophical and epistemological works where we can find a very clear analysis of the difference existing between abstraction and idealization and, in this respect, the work of Ernst Cassirer is quite emblematic.
Sin embargo, para escribir este trabajo hemos querido hacer un "alto" en ese arduo camino de alfabetizacion filosofica, todavia con importantes tramos por los que transitar--y mucho que corregir--, en funcion de explorar otros modos reflexivos de aproximacion al fenomeno de lenguaje y de la significatividad del mundo intersubjetivo humano; en especial, a las consideraciones que sobre estos explaya Cassirer en sus escritos mas relevantes.
