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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Learning the Langauge of the Spiritual World Sept. 6 2012
By David Holt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Like many others, I started reading this book but soon gave up in frustration. Only later to realize that this book is the foundation of all of Rudolf Steiner's work (which he himself said many times). This is not an easy read and should not be read like a regular book, you need to really meditate on it, stop and think and question all the way through it at a slow pace.

Do we really need a book that teaches us how to think? Yes, more than ever in a society that wants to do the thinking for us with TV, movies and ads galore. Just look at AR Augmented Reality and you can see the urgency.

I actually prefer the older Philosophy of Spiritual Activity but this book is good as well. So why is it so hard to read and understand?

Everything in this book is coming from a mind that is in another plane of existence and then is put into words. The spiritual world speaks in symbols and this is symbolic text. Think of it this way. If you were to read a book on how to speak another language and most of the book was written in that language, although it was also written in a language you understood, it would be difficult. That is how this book is written.

This book will train your mind to understand itself and you will learn the language of the spiritual planes. I know of no other book that does this just by reading and studying it. I found it also helps to meditate on key ideas from the book.

If you really want to get the full effect. Start with; The Theory of Knowledge Implicit in Goethe's World Conception by Rudolf Steiner then read and study;The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity by Rudolf Steiner and then Philosophy of Freedom. You will then trace Rudolf Steiner's thinking and rhythm for all of his work and lectures. I have noticed that this book alone will increase your comprehension and intelligence level greatly. A new world of ideas and thought will open itself to you and as a result you will also experience some amazing things.

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.
