Publisher: United Kingdom, Rudolf Steiner Press: 1999

Seller ID: 4084

ISBN: 1855840723


Although this book was first published in 1919, it remains highly relevant to social problems encountered today. Uniquely, Steiner's social thinking is not based on intellectual theory, but on a profound perception of the archetypal spiritual nature of social life. As he suggests in this classic work, society has three distinct realms? the economic, the political (individual human rights), and the cultural (spiritual). While social life as a whole is a unity, the autonomy of these three sectors should be respected if our increasing social problems are to be resolved. [When referring to t... View more info

"In our long human journey, individual and collective, the journey that science calls evolution, many indeed are the turning points. But they are not so much turning points in outer, material manifestation in the fossils of paleontology, for those fossils are only the shed garments worn by humans in an earlier age, vestments designed by providence to meet the need of a changing human consciousness moving through time. Where the real evolution occurs, for which the necessary outer garments are tailored over time, is in the realm of consciousness as it transitions from spirit to matter and b... View more info

This is the first of two previously untranslated volumes of Rudolf Steiner's public lectures on Waldorf education.

Other themes include understanding the role of health and illness in education, as well as repeated expositions of the three major phases in child development:... View more info

Although the younger generation of Rudolf Steiner's time was not yet aware of it, the question “How can we find the spirit?” was the driving force of the times, leading to the “youth movement.” In fact, as Steiner emphasized, the spiritually active forces that produced the youth movement were manifesting as such for the first time. University students were affected as well by the struggles of the early twentieth century, but it was Steiner who brought clarity to the myriad of f... View more info

Steiner sees Krishna as a great spiritual teacher and the Bhagavad Gita as a preparation, though still abstract, for the coming of Christ and the Christ impulse as the living embodiment of the world, law, and devotion, represented by the three Hindu streams of Veda, Sankhya, and Yoga. For him, the epic poem of the Bhagavad Gita represents the fully ripened fruit of Hinduism, whereas Paul is related but represents the seed of something entirely new. In the last lecture, Steiner reveals Krishna as the sister soul of Adam, incarnated as Jesus, and claims Krishas Yoga teachings streamed from Chris... View more info

"As microcosms we are actually part of, and subject to, the same laws that cosmic beings are, just as the breath we draw is subject to our own human nature.... If our hearts are sensitive to the secrets of cosmic existence and not merely blocks of wood, the words we have been placed into the universe will no longer be an abstract statement. We will be fully alive to this fact. Knowledge and a feeling will spring up within us, the fruits of which will be born in our will impulses, and our whole being will live in unison with the great life, divine cosmic existence." —Rudolf Steine...
