He has revised the whole manuscript and given me his kind advice on all linguistic and stylistic questions.
But 1 am also very much indebted to him for many valuable and pertinent remarks regarding the subject matter of the hook.
But I have tried at least to give ample and detailed quotations from the standard works on the vari- ous subjects.
What the reader will find is not at all a complete bibliography-even the titles of such a bibliography would have far exceeded the space that has been allowed me.
He taught at the Universities of Berlin and’ Hamburg until his departure from Germany in 1932 to accept an appointment at Oxford.
In 1941, Cassirer came to America to teach at Yale where he remained until 1944.
Ernst Cassirer was born in Breslau on July 28, 1874.
Upon graduation from the University of Berlin, he con- tinued his studies in philosophy at the University of Marburg.
He has read the manuscript several times, and I have always been able to accept his critical suggestions. The dedication has, however, not only a personal but also a "symbolic 1 ’ meaning.
By dedicating this book to the Chair- man of the Department of Philosophy and to the Director of Graduate Studies at Yale University I wish to expiess to the Department itself my cordial thanks.
