Introduction

My motivation for writing about Cassirer is not based on a wish to investigate philosophy, as such. Consequently, where philosophers expect to fi nd lengthy discussions about, for example, the different branches of the Marburg school, they will be disappointed. I am not investigating Cassirer in order to shed light on philosophy. Also, taking into account the diversity and enormous number of subjects covered by Cassirer in his writings, I will leave several themes unnoticed.
