Beginning with ancient Egypt, the pyramids, and sphinxes, and a comparison of that epoch with our own, Steiner surveys a vast mental landscape in symphonic style. He leads us through the kingdoms of nature and the spiritual beings at work within them, the evolution of man in relation to the cosmos, the workings of the spirits of form, the relation among the post-Atlantean epochs, and much more. Through this panoramic survey, we discover how the changed conditions of human consciousness and its path into the future call for a new wisdom.

About the Author:

Rudolf Steiner (1861 1925) was born in the small village of Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia), where he grew up. As a young man, he lived in Weimar and Berlin, where he became a well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known especially for his work with Goethe s scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings. The influence of Steiner s multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, various therapies, philosophy, religious renewal, Waldorf education, education for special needs, threefold economics, biodynamic agriculture, Goethean science, architecture, and the arts of drama, speech, and eurythmy. In 1924, Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world. He died in Dornach, Switzerland.
