The purpose of this thesis is to present Ernst Cassirer's philosophy of science and to show its relation to Kantian philosophy. In the first chapter, the basic theme of transcendental philosophy, the concept of unity, is developed. Then, finally, the se of "transcendental" and "empirical" is explained with respect to Kant's theory of experience. Here it is pointed out that the experience is an immanent mixture of transcendental and empirical elements. Experience and self-consciousness are systematically interconnected. The transcendental concepts serving as the ground of empirical determination merely represent the inherent unity of consciousness [TRUNCATED]
