Keywords: Aesthetics; Philosophy of Culture; Hermann Cohen; Ernst Cassirer; Experience.

On the one hand, the present work aims to trace some of the most salient moments concerning the reflections in the aesthetic field that mature within the problematic horizon of the thought of Hermann Cohen and Ernst Cassirer, two of the most representative figures of German Neocriticism, and on the other hand to identify the way in which the different positions are situating themselves and changing, through their particularly significant developments, in the evolution of the thought of the authors examined, especially in their close comparisons with the philosophy of Kant. Specifically, the task and the goal that we are given here are to investigate the peculiarity of the relationship between the transcendental a priori and the problem of experience, reaching the determination of the particular-manifold and the definition of the epistemological norms of Sciences of Life thanks to which unravels the crucial passage of Neocriticism from the "Critique of Reason" to the "Critique of Culture". This way allows Cohen and Cassirer to rethink the transcendental a priori in its correspondence to life and in its direction towards the concrete-manifold.
