The philosophy of the enlightenment by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

271 editions published between 1932 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 3,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present book aims to be both more and less than a monograph on the philosophy of the Enlightenment. It is much less, for the primary task of such monograph would be to offer the reader a wealth of detail and to trace the genesis and development of all the special problems of this philosophy
An essay on man : an introduction to a philosophy of human culture by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

181 editions published between 1944 and 2016 in English and German and held by 2,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing upon a wealth of scientific, anthropological and historical date, the author examines man's efforts to understand himself and to deal with the problems of his universe through the creation and use of symbols. Analyzes the major symbolic forms of human enterprise: language, myth, art, religion, history and science. Discusses such subjects as the origins of language, doctrines of aesthetics, Frazer's theory of magic, the religious significance of taboo, the symbolic implications of philosophic thought from Heraclitus to Kierkegaard and Einstein
The individual and the cosmos in Renaissance philosophy by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

129 editions published between 1927 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This provocative volume, one of the most important interpretive works on the philosophical thought of the Renaissance, has long been regarded as a classic in its field. Ernst Cassirer here examines the changes brewing in the early stages of the Renaissance, tracing the interdependence of philosophy, language, art, and science; the newfound recognition of individual consciousness; and the great thinkers of the period - from da Vinci and Galileo to Pico della Mirandola and Giordano Bruno. The Individual and the Cosmos in Renaissance Philosophy discusses the importance of fifteenth-century philosopher Nicholas Cusanus, the concepts of freedom and necessity, and the subject-object problem in Renaissance thought."--Pub. desc
The Renaissance philosophy of man : selections in translation by Ernst Cassirer( Book )

132 editions published between 1948 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 2,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite our admiration for Renaissance achievement in the arts and sciences, in literature and classical learning, the rich and diversified philosophical thought of the period remains largely unknown. This volume illuminates three major currents of thought dominant in the earlier Italian Renaissance: classical humanism (Petrarch and Valla), Platonism (Ficino and Pico), and Aristotelianism (Pomponazzi). A short and elegant work of the Spaniard Vives is included to exhibit the diffusion of the ideas of humanism and Platonism outside Italy." [Back cover]
