Young Doctors Course: Publisher's Note

On-line since: 10th September, 2008

Rudolf Steiner, in his autobiography (chapters 35 and 36), speaks as follows concerning the character of this privately printed matter:

The content of this printed matter was intended as oral communications, not to be printed ...

Nothing has ever been said that is not in the utmost degree the purest result of developing Anthroposophy ... Whoever reads this privately printed material can take it in the fullest sense as containing what Anthroposophy has to say. Therefore, it was possible without hesitation ... to depart from the plan of circulating this printed matter only among members [of the Anthroposophical Society]. It will be necessary, however, to put up with the fact that erroneous matter is included in the lecture reports that I have not revised.

The right to a judgment about the content of such privately printed material can naturally be conceded only to one who knows what is taken for granted as the prerequisite basis of this judgment. For most of this printed matter the prerequisite will be at least the anthroposophical knowledge of the human being and of the cosmos to the extent that their nature is set forth in Anthroposophy, and of what exists in the form of ‘anthroposophical history’ in the communications from the world of spirit.
