Summary

The introduction explains how Cassirer's writings interweave three philosophical objectives: elucidating the spheres, the unity, and the history of human culture. Throughout the twentieth century, Cassirer has been mainly remembered for the third component , yet his thought cannot be properly understood if one does not take into account each of these interrelated objectives.
