ESPARZA, Gustavo  y  BRAVO, Nassim. Myth and Political Care in Ernst Cassirer. The Function of Philosophy as a Builder of Peace. En-clav. pen [online]. 2023, vol.17, n.34, e635.  Epub 15-Sep-2023. ISSN 2594-1100.

Cassirer proposed as Philosophical responsibility to take care that the totality of symbols operate according to their individual form. Particularly, the author considers that, due to the evocative power of myth and its pre-logical structure, it constituted a fertile field of foundation for political systems such as Nazism and Fascism, two systems characterized by the abandonment and neglect of inclusive anthropological foundations. The aim of the present paper is to reconstruct the critique adduced by the Neo-Kantian to the emergence and emergence of political myth. As a result, it will be shown how a critique of culture, in the terms proposed in the Philosophy of Symbolic Forms and in The Myth of the State, offers new interpretative resources for the construction of model of political care whose purpose is the construction of a culture of peace.
