Rudolf Steiner is a pivotal figure in contemporary, esoteric thinking. He has provided an impetus for spiritually renewing numerous areas of twentieth-century culture, including education, agriculture, medicine, the arts, and religion. In describing human evolution, Steiner showed how Christ's death and resurrection - the "Mystery of Golgotha" - has a singular importance in the human struggle toward the summit of evolution: union with the higher self.
In this book, Bernard Nesfield-Cookson shows how Steiner's vision of love, the transformative power brought by Christ, unites the forces of the human head and heart, leading to the spiritual awakening of humankind.
The author gathers references to the "logic of the heart" from throughout Steiner's work and encapsulates what he revealed about the meaning of love. And he shows the supreme importance of the greatest of all acts of love - the Mystery of Golgotha.

In short, Steiner emphasises the necessity of transforming "head thinking" into heart thinking if we are to gain true knowledge not only of the physical world around us, including our fellow men, but also of the spiritual world. Our quest for knowledge, grounded in an active, creative thinking, must be guided by love and devotion. Indeed we could say that without love and devotion, without the warmth of feeling of the power of will, creative, active thought is not possible. - Page 13 Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 352 pages.
