This fourth volume of The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms, available now for the first time in English, fittingly concludes Ernst Cassirer's magnum opus. At his death in 1945, the great twentieth-century philosopher left manuscripts for this final volume. In these writings Cassirer grounds his conception of symbolic forms on a particular notion of human nature and discusses Basis Phenomena.

"The book will not disappoint those who have waited so long for it". -- Library Journal

"This is a remarkable translation -- faithful to Cassirer's text and doing justice to his meaning. An impressive performance". -- Raymond Klibansky, McGill University and University of Heidelberg
