“Concerning: Electricity, Terrestrial Magnetism, Radio Conduction of Heat, Sensitive Flames, Etheric Formative Forces, The Four Ethers, Resonant Oscillation, Refinement of Peat Fibers, etc.”

Anthroposophy has manifold roots in natural science. Rudolf Steiner never tired of saying that the development of scientific awareness had given people the possibility of freedom, that the way to cognizing the spiritual world is based on the natural scientific attitude, and that certainty of such knowledge is comparable to the certainty found in mathematics and natural science. Especially noteworthy is Steiner's comments on the importance of how experiments should be done―first, that scientists should adopt the attitude that their workbench is an altar, and second, that scientists should seek the cooperation of elemental beings.

Steiner was concerned that people do new experiments because of the many new views and educational possibilities that can arise. Consequently, in 1920, a special institute was established with departments for physics and biology in Stuttgart, financed by the scanty means of the joint-stock company, Der kommende Tag (literally, “the coming day”). The purpose of the institute were described by Steiner:

What we lack is not the empirical material, but the gathering of possibilities, which are also possibilities of explaining one phenomenon through another phenomenon. Therefore, in our research institute, we will no longer do experiments using the old methods, for there really is an excess of empirical material available.
Though the institute eventually closed, owing to financial difficulties, in 1926 on the initiative of Guenther Wachsmuth, Paul Eugen Schiller took most of the materials to Dornach. There, he set up a simple physics laboratory where he worked for several years, working mainly on Steiner’s indications about the “sensitive flame.”

Drawn from Schiller’s notebooks, this important volume describes natural scientific research by scientists working at the Goetheanum and following suggestions from Rudolf Steiner, leading, for example, to research on gases at low temperatures and high vacuum. Steiner told them, “You will tend to produce conditions at the Sun’s center, where matter is annihilated and exists in a negative state; similarly with space. Spectrum analysis was used in these experiments, but for ‘true’ results, the spectroscope would need to be modified.” On electricity, Steiner told them,” We do not know electricity, except by its effects.... In origin, it is an astral force.”

The Schiller File is an important resource for those who wish to better understand how to approach and practice natural science from the perspective of spiritual science.

Includes an extensive index. The Schiller File is a translation of Beiträge zur Rudolf Steiner Gesamtausgabe Veröffentlichungen aus dem Archiv der Rudolf Steiner-Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.

About the Author:

Paul-Eugen Schiller (1900-1992) was an anthroposophist and a physicist who worked during the 1920s as an assistant at the research laboratory in Stuttgart on tasks set by Rudolf Steiner. Later, he moved to the Goetheanum, where he established a simple physics laboratory and devoted his life to developing Steiner's indications related to electricity, earthly magnetism, heat radiation, sensitive flames, etheric formative forces, the four ethers, resonant oscillation, and much more. His written works include Rudolf Steiner and Initiation and The Schiller File.

Review:

Rudolf Steiner (January 28, 1923):

“If Anthroposophy were fanatical, if Anthroposophy were ascetic and austere, there would naturally follow a thundering against electricity. That would obviously be nonsense, for only a worldview that did not reckon with reality would speak in this way. They could say: Oh, that is ahrimanic! Keep away from it! One can actually do that only in the abstract. For when one has arranged just such a sectarian gathering and bargained for protection against Ahriman, then one still goes down the stairs and gets into an electric tram. So that this entire ranting against Ahriman, however holy it may sound, is―forgive the trivial expression―absolute rubbish. One, therefore, cannot close one’s eyes to the fact that one must live with Ahriman. Only one must live with him in the right way; one must not allow oneself to be overcome by him.”
