Ernst Cassirer

Cassirer, Ernst (1874–1945), German-born philosopher. His work, based on the ideas of Immanuel Kant, examines the ways in which a person's symbols and concepts structure his or her world. He fled Nazi Germany in 1933 and taught at Oxford, in Sweden, and, from 1941, in the United States.
