On the Vicissitudes of Idealism in Philosophy of Science: The Case of Cassirer's 'Critical Idealism'

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
In Anglo-Saxon philosophy of science there is strong conviction that idealist philosophy of science on the the one hand and serious science and philosophy of science on the other do not go well together. In this paper I argue that this sweeping dismissal of the idealist tradition may have been too hasty. They may be some valuable insights for which it is striving. A promising case in question is provided by Ernst Cassirer’s Neo-Kantian „Critical Idealism“ that he put forward in the first decades of the past century, or so I’d like to argue.
