Exploring dreams, fantasy, memory, and perception, Steiner develops
here a remarkable, experiential path to higher knowledge. It is a very
concentrated work that can be studied over and over.
The four essays presented here were written during October
and November of 1923. In the Collected Edition of Rudolf
Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is
entitled Der Goetheanumgedanke inmitten der Kulturkrisis der
Gegenwart 1921–1925. (Vol. 36 in the Bibliographic Survey,
1961). They were translated from the German by Samuel Borton
and edited by Alan Howard and Gisela O'Neil.
