Ernst Cassirer occupies a unique space in Twentieth century philosophy. A great liberal humanist, his astonishing oeuvre spans the history of philosophy, the philosophy of science, intellectual history, aesthetics, epistemology, the study of language and myth, and more. He anticipates the renewed interest in the origins of analytic and continental philosophy and the divergent paths taken by the 'logicist' and existential traditions, epitomised by his now legendary debate in 1929 with the philosopher Martin Heidegger, over the question 'What is the Human Being?'

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 major 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.

Volume 3: The Phenomenology of Knowledge is a major exploration of the phenomenology of knowledge, examining major themes of epistemology, perception and consciousness across the human sciences with major sections on knowledge in mathematics and the physical sciences.

This major new translation brings Cassirer's magnum opus to a new generation of readers. Taken together the three volumes of The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms are a major treatise on human beings as symbolic animals and a monumental expression of Kantian thought. Correcting important errors in previous translations this translation reflects the contributions of major advances in Cassirer scholarship over the last twenty to thirty years.

Each volume includes a new introduction and translator's notes by Steven Lofts, a translation glossary and thorough index.
