The essay 'The concept of Reality' is a part of the first systematic work of Ernst Cassirer, the alumnus of the Marburg school, titled 'Substanzbegriff und Funktionsbegriff. Untersuchungen über Grundfragen der Erkenntniskritik' (1910). It developed certain position concerning the problem of reality, which is representative for this school. This conception, and especially the shift of cognitive perspective, from substantial to functional, contained in it, is crucial as far as the whole later Cassirer's work is concerned and it comes as the foundation for the subsequent theory of symbolic forms.
