Life is full of riddles. Why do we suffer? What is evil? What
becomes of us after death? What is our origin? Without answers
to questions like these our life seems to lack meaning and
purpose. The materialistic science of our time can offer no
satisfactory answer to such questions. But the science of the
spirit, inaugurated by Rudolf Steiner, can. In this collection
of thirteen lectures, Steiner focuses the light of higher
states of consciousness on these pressing concerns of the soul.
The resulting supersensible knowledge gives the soul that
sureness which comes from real knowledge.
During the last two decades of the nineteenth century, the
Austrian-born Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) became a respected and
well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar,
particularly known for his work on Goethe's scientific
writings. After the turn of the
century he began to develop his earlier philosophical
principles into an approach to methodical research of
psychological and spiritual phenomena.
multi-faceted genius has led to innovative and holistic
approaches in medicine, science, education (Waldorf schools),
special education, philosophy, religion, economics,
agriculture (Bio-Dvnamic method), architecture, drama, the new
art of eurvthmy, and other fields. In 1924 he founded
the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has
branches throughout the world.
