1 Recenseren
The remarkable discussions in this book took place between Rudolf Steiner and workers at the Goetheanum in Switzerland. The varied subject matter was chosen by the audience at Steiner's instigation. Steiner took questions and generally offered immediate answers. The astonishing nature of his responses -- their insight, knowledge, and spiritual depth -- testifies to his outstanding ability as a spiritual initiate and profound thinker. Accessible, entertaining and stimulating, the records of these sessions will be a delight to any open-minded reader.

Here Steiner covers topics ranging from elephants to Einstein. Among other things, he discusses ants, bees, shells, skeletons, animal and plant poisons, bodily secretions, protein and fats, potatoes, the human eye, water, animal migration, clothing, opium and alcohol, and thinking.

Over de auteur (1998)

Austrian-born Rudolf Steiner was a noted Goethe (see Vol. 2) scholar and private student of the occult who became involved with Theosophy in Germany in 1902, when he met Annie Besant (1847--1933), a devoted follower of Madame Helena P. Blavatsky (1831--1891). In 1912 he broke with the Theosophists because of what he regarded as their oriental bias and established a system of his own, which he called Anthroposophy (anthro meaning "man"; sophia sophia meaning "wisdom"), a "spiritual science" he hoped would restore humanism to a materialistic world. In 1923 he set up headquarters for the Society of Anthroposophy in New York City. Steiner believed that human beings had evolved to the point where material existence had obscured spiritual capacities and that Christ had come to reverse that trend and to inaugurate an age of spiritual reintegration. He advocated that education, art, agriculture, and science be based on spiritual principles and infused with the psychic powers he believed were latent in everyone. The world center of the Anhthroposophical Society today is in Dornach, Switzerland, in a building designed by Steiner. The nonproselytizing society is noted for its schools.
