EXPRESSIVE FORM OF PERCEPTION/ EXPERIENCE OF (PURE) EXPRESSIONQ2

Abstract

 The aim of present paper is to introduce the concept of 'expressive perception' in Ernst Cassirer's philosophical mythology. Having Cited Dorothy Emmet's methodological objection, the author, by recalling Kantian aspect of Cassirer's thought and referring to the concept of 'expressive perception', would make an attempt to reply on his part: according to Cassirer, this level of perceptive experience is the origin of the mythical form of thinking as a whole and, at the same time, is the original and irreducible altogether. Thus, taking 'mythical thought' as an independent form of thinking, beside the 'critical-empirical' form of thinking (as another independent form), is, for one thing, completely cogent; for another, due to its dependency upon expressive form of perception, mythical thought would never be quite omitted, rather, keep living latently beneath the skin of mental life. In addition, author explains how much Cassirer owes, regarding to the concept of 'expressive form of perception', to Max Scheler. Avoiding to elaborate on Scheler's detailed argument, Cassirer relies strongly on the consequences Scheler draws from his considerations in his work 'Wesen und Formen der Sympathie'. Restating Scheler's argument briefly should help in understanding Cassirer's idea.
