Abstract
Njemački filozof Ernst Cassirer (1874.–1945.) najčešće se spominje kao filozof kulture, a u ovom radu prikazano je njegovo proučavanje jezika kao simboličkog oblika. Njegovo istraživanje započinje kao odgovor na duhovnu krizu svoga vremena, a završava stvaranjem čitavog novog sustava – filozofije simboličkih oblika. Simbol je po Cassireru, ključ za shvaćanje čovjekove prirode. Čovjek je otkrio novu metodu prilagođavanja okolini i to preko simbola. Napredovanjem čovjekove simboličke djelatnosti on se odvaja od prirode i živi u samostvorenom svijetu simbola. Cassirer tako dolazi do nove definicije čovjeka kao animal symbolicum. U središtu ovog rada stoji Cassirerova analiza jezika kao simboličkog oblika, kao i ukazivanje na njegovu ulogu u stvaranju ostalih simboličkih oblika i same kulture.

Parallel abstract (English)
German philosopher Ernst Cassirer (1874–1945) is mostly referred as a philosopher of culture, but in this work his study on language as a symbolic form will be shown. His research begins as an answer on the spiritual crisis of his time and ends with creating a whole new sistem – philosophy of symbolic forms. The symbol is (a) key in understanding humans nature. Through the symbol, man has discovered a new method of adapting himself to his environment. With the progress of human symbolic work, he is separating himself from nature and living in a self made symbolic world. Cassirer comes to a new deffinition of a human as animal symbolicum. In the centre of this work stands Cassirers analysis of language as a symbolic form, as well as indicating his part in creating all the other symbolic forms and the culture itself.
