Product Description

About the Author

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. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his earlier philosophical principles into an approach to methodical research of psychological and spiritual phenomena. His multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, philosophy, religion, education (Waldorf schools), special education (the Camphill movement), economics, agriculture (biodynamics), science, architecture, and the arts (drama, speech and eurythmy). In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which has branches throughout the world.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Flaxman on April 12 2000
Format: Paperback
This is a new translation of Rudolf Steiner's most important work. It has an especially good introduction by Gertrude Hughes Reif. However, I preferred the two older titles: "Philosophy of Freedom" and "Philosophy of Spiritual Activity" because the significance of the experience of the book comes across better for me with those titles. This is not a book that can be "read" in the usual sense. It must be worked on because it forces you to think about your own thinking. Through this difficult process you yourself discover your spiritual self, your "I" being. This book should be the most important book of the last 100 years, but it hasn't been because there are not many people who want to discover themselves. That is too fearful and difficult. It is much easier to be asleep or to belong to a religion or to have a guru. For anyone who is brave and courageous about "Know Thyself!" this is THE book.

Format: Paperback
Perhaps one of the most significant questions you can ask in your life: How can I know anything? How can I feel sure that what I hold as the basis for reality has any reality at all? These and other significant life questions are worked through in this remarkable philosophical work. Be prepared to do your own work as you follow the intuitive path that has been carefully outlined by Rudolf Steiner. The careful reader will find few books more deeply satisfying. I have returned to re-read it many times.

This, I presume, is an alternative English title for Steiner's great Philosophy of Freedom (Philosophie der Freiheit). Please see my review of the Michael Wilson translation for commentary from a professional philosopher.

One of the best books I have ever read Feb. 21 2011
By Divine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rudolf Steiner was a genius. This is a very in depth and challenging read that will help you to really know reality. Whether or not you agree with everything he says, read it with an open mind and really think through the material being presented. Just doing so will grow your intelligence.
I find that Rudolf Steiner's written works are a very satisfying read. Truly reading them with an open mind and following his thought process is very enlightening and is itself a form of meditation.
Again this is a very challenging read. If you are new to Steiner then I would recommend reading either this book or "How to Know Higher Worlds" (also translated as "Knowledge of Higher Worlds and Its Attainment") first.

Challenging but well worth the effort. May 13 2013
By E. Walter Masciulli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Steiner. This book is difficult to read, but full of insights every time you re-read something. This book cannot be read on an intellectual level, but MUST be read on a soul-spiritual level with a desire to want to transform yourself to be able to access spiritual phenomena that lies outside what today's natural science can ascertain. The material when properly digested and experienced with lead the reader to a new realization and know that he is not just a physical body, but, a spiritual being using the physical body to relate and learn and grow on this earthly plane and will lead the person to aid in the development of humanity. It will also give one the purpose for their existence and the path one needs to follow to obtain that purpose.
