Inner Aspect of the Social Question

Rudolf Steiner Archive Document

Lectures Section

Rudolf Steiner suggested new ways to organize society and engage with social questions. This book presents his esoteric perspective on such concerns. Steiner asserts that we must begin by giving real value to the human element in the world, finding a deeper understanding of our relationship to nature and to the cosmos. Accordingly, it is ineffective to organize society in an arbitrary way; society ought to reflect the human relationship to the spiritual world. Steiner goes on to discuss the threefold archetype of social life - the political state, the economy, and the spiritual and cultural aspects - and how these three areas can interact in a healthy way, leading to an evolving society that is vibrant.
