Ausdruck/Ausdrucksloses, Cassirer Studies V/VI (2012/2013)

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

We are pleased to present volume V/VI,  Ausdruck/Ausdrucksloses, of «Cassirer Studies». The double issue is the result of a variety of insights concerning the role that expression (Ausdruck) plays in the philosophy of Ernst Cassirer. The use of the term “expressionless” (Ausdrucksloses) is borrowed from Walter Benjamin. As the title of this issue, the juxtaposition of expression and expressionless invites the authors to explore the antinomic perspectives of expression that underlie the nature of symbolism. The table of contents is to be found below:
