Mysticism at the Dawn of the Modern Age

Rudolf Steiner
GA 7

Translated by Karl E. Zimmer
Introductory Comment by Paul M. Allen

This book originated in lectures Steiner gave to a small circle of theosophists and constitutes the earliest public exposition of his spiritual scientific research. In it Steiner deals with the impact of modern scientific thinking on our spiritual experiences and the conflict between reason and revelation. He looks at how 11 European mystics resolved the dichotomy between their inner spiritual perceptions and individual freedom and the age of invention and discovery then coming to birth.

This volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
