4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gary L. Herstein on February 8, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
This Kindle edition is simply a "kindle-ization" of the .PDF volume which can be downloaded for free from the Internet Archive. The text is poorly formatted, and often times the OCR process has completely scrambled the text. There is no relation between the table of contents and the text. The footnotes simply show up anywhere (and Cassirer footnoted extensively.) All of these facts are readily evident by simply looking at the free sample.

The book itself is one of the most important contributions to the philosophy of science in the last 2 centuries or more. A *REAL* Kindle version is desperately needed. In the meantime, you are better off simply downloading the .PDF from the Internet Archive. At least the formatting and text will align, and you can still read it on your kindle.

Format: Hardcover
This text should be mandatory reading for every middle school student. A wonderful read enabling the interior coordination of one's mindscape with a more foundational and fundamental correspondence to reality.
