N the year 1920 I was asked to introduce the
teaching of Rudolf Steiner to a group of people. The following
introduction is the result. It aims at being a reference to the work
of Rudolf Steiner. It is worked out chiefly from the books
“Outline of Occult Science,”
“The Spiritual Guidance of Man and Mankind”
(published by the Anthroposophical Publishing Co., 46,
Gloucester Place, W.I.), and
from notes of lectures given by Rudolf Steiner within the
Anthroposophical Movement, which at Christmas, 1923, he allowed
to be published in their character as manuscript. Now having been
asked by English friends to allow them to translate it, I decided to
hand it over to them for printing.
