The Tension Between East and West

Rudolf Steiner Archive Document

Lectures Section

Given during the East-West Congress of 1922 in Vienna, these challenging lectures lift the veil from modern social and spiritual problems by exploring historical and philosophical paradoxes found in Eastern and Western ways of life. Steiner emphasizes the need to develop new mental faculties to bridge the gulf between matter and spirit, faculties that will provide conscious social certainties to replace uncertain instincts. The first half of this volume builds up the foundation of knowledge; the second half gives the impulse to right action.

Given during the East-West Congress of 1922 in Vienna, these challenging lectures lift the veil from modern social and spiritual problems by exploring historical and philosophical paradoxes found in Eastern and Western ways of life. Steiner emphasizes the need to develop new mental faculties to bridge the gulf between matter and spirit, faculties that will provide conscious social certainties to replace uncertain instincts.

The first half of this volume builds up the foundation of knowledge; the second half gives the impulse to right action.

Translated by B. A. Rowley, and with a Foreword by Owen Barfield, this volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
