On Nuclear Energy and the Occult Atom
By George Unger
Copyright © 1982
Georg Unger is the head of the Department of Mathematics and
Astronomy at the Goetheanum Dornach. Born in Stuttgart, Germany, he
was a pupil of the first Waldorf School.
His publications range from the epistemological foundations of
mathematics and physics to symptomatic discussions of developments in
the field of science.
The two lectures presented here are translated from
Von Wesen der Kernenergie
which was published in
no. 108, 1978.
In these lectures Dr. Unger addressed an audience familiar with the
works of Rudolf Steiner. The lectures integrate Dr. Unger's
considerable knowledge of modern physics, mathematics, and technology
with his studies of Steiner's works and of course his own
penetrating insight. The reader unfamiliar with Steiner's
works, particularly the basic writings, will find this volume very
challenging and may want to go to writings such as
An Outline of Occult Science,
Knowledge of the Higher Worlds
in order to enhance his understanding.
