About the Author:

Gary Lachman is the author of many books on consciousness, culture, and the Western esoteric tradition, including Rudolf Steiner: An Introduction to His Life and Work, A Secret History of Consciousness, and Politics and the Occult. He writes for several journals in the US and UK and lectures on his work in the US and Europe. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages, and he has appeared in several radio and television documentaries. A founding member of the rock group Blondie, Lachman was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

From Booklist:

A founding member of the rock band Blondie (he's a prolific writer on esoterica and the occult, too) brings one of the twentieth century's most enigmatic figures to life. Architect, artist, teacher, agriculturalist, philosopher--Steiner was all those and remains known for many things. He was founder of the Waldorf schools, an alternative education system still in practice throughout the world; a leader of the popular occult movement, theosophy; and founder of the metaphysical teaching called anthroposophy. Rather the stereotypical intellectual, especially in his youth, Steiner was quiet, possessed of a very rich inner life, and admittedly found dealing with the external world difficult. Lachman calls him a visionary and something of a Renaissance man, with many interests (too many, thought critics, who accused him of dilettantism) and unflagging energy. If some of his theories were goofy, Lachman sees beyond them to point out his very real contributions to the world of ideas during his rise from obscure scholar to spiritual leader. A solid introduction to Steiner's life and thought. Ray Olson

Book Description FLORIS BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Rudolf Steiner -- educator, architect, artist, philosopher and agriculturalist -- ranks amongst the most creative and prolific figures of the early twentieth century. Yet he remains a mystery to most people. This is the first truly popular biography of the man behind the ideas, written by a sympathetic but critical outsider. Steiner is widely known for what he left behind: a network of Waldorf schools, biodynamic farming, Camphill schools and villages and pioneering work in holistic health and environmental research. Although his achievements are felt all over the world, few people understand this unusual figure. Steiner s own writings fill several bookcases, but are often dense and insider in tone. Gary Lachman tells Steiner s story lucidly and with great insight. He presents Steiner s key ideas in a readable, accessible way, tracing his beginning as a young intellectual in the ferment of fin de siecle culture to the founding of his own metaphysical teaching, called anthroposophy. This book is a full-bodied portrait of one of the most original philosophical and spiritual luminaries of the last two centuries. Seller Inventory # ABS9780863156182
