About the Author

Samantha Matherne is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University, USA. She has published articles on Kant, neo-Kantianism, phenomenology, and aesthetics. She is a co-author (with Dominic McIver Lopes, Mohan Matthen, and Bence Nanay) of the forthcoming book The Geography of Taste.


"This is an excellent, well-organized, clearly written, and comprehensive book. It does a great job both with expounding the details of Cassirer's work, at a level that will be appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and showing the deep and lasting relevance of Cassirer's thought today." - Paul Livingston, University of New Mexico, USA

"Matherne has written a guide to Cassirer's philosophy that is both accurate and stimulating to read. She takes into account the whole scope of his work - from his early writings and his professorship during the Weimar Republic, to his years of exile in Sweden and the United States - and provides an important addition to our understanding of his lasting influence." - Jeffrey Andrew Barash, Universite de Picardie, Amiens, France
