Correspondence and documents, 1901–1925 (CW 262) “I send you fondest thoughts on your birthday.

Kaspar Hauser, Child of Europe

“From time to time in the history of humanity, extraordinary individualities appear, carrying with them great tasks which are difficult to assess. Through this lens, the events around Kaspar Hauser (1812–1833) can be seen as signposts to one of the most important mysteries of modern times, which will radiate far into the future. Kaspar’s appearance and the essence of his being are deeply ...

Look at What We Can Become

Neill Reilly presents portraits (rather than biographies) of five remarkable individuals. These are short, subjective, affectionate sketches. The author relates fond remembrances of five departed souls in deeply personal portraits that are nevertheless meaningful even for those who have never heard of these people who chose a life of service. Readers can test the facts presented here and ...

Rudolf Steiner, Life and Work

“All this must be accepted as destiny [karma]. It would be sentimental to enlarge on how much it pains me to be separated physically from the Goetheanum and its activities. I hope only that all this will not inhibit but temper and enhance our dear friends’ forces.” —Rudolf Steiner, Dec. 24, 1924 In the final volume of his comprehensive biography of Rudolf Steiner, Peter Selg describes Steiner’s ...

Rudolf Steiner, Life and Work

“Try to become one with the world—that will be the best and most important ‘program.’ It is something that cannot be contained in statutes but needs to burn in our hearts as a flame.” —Rudolf Steiner In 1923, Central Europe was still in disarray and social chaos created by the polarizing events of World War I. In volume 6 of his seven-volume biography of Rudolf Steiner, Peter Selg focuses on one ...

Pythagoras, the Master

Pythagoras was one of the great geniuses of the West and yet, apart from his famous Pythagorean theorem, he is virtually unknown. If we rely on modern scholars and academics we find that his long-forgotten legacy is misunderstood and even distorted, and is therefore almost nonexistent. This new and provocative work from Carol Dunn (author of Plato’s Dialogues: Path to Initiation) accomplishes ...

Elisabeth Vreede

Rudolf Steiner entrusted the Esoteric Section and the Mathematics and Astronomy Section at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland, to Elisabeth Vreede (1879–1943) because of her special abilities. He commented, “Miss. Vreede is one of the people who best understands my lectures.” Elisabeth Vreede was recognized as the “esoterically educated” member of Steiner’s governing body. Nevertheless, in ...

Rudolf Steiner

“I don’t want to be revered! I want to be understood.” —Rudolf Steiner, 1915 Whoever follows Rudolf Steiner’s life will gain the impression that, from a certain point on, his constant attempt was to awake, in numerous ways, an active, working understanding for Anthroposophy. He used creative imagination to treat particular themes and tasks, ever anew, and in many forms. If we observe the ...

Adam Curle

Adam Curle’s pioneering work as the founding Professor of Peace Studies at Bradford University has been significantly more important to the peace-studies field than is generally understood. Although his ideas were far ahead of his time, they have not been adequately taught and understood—in part because of the dominance of “realistic” approaches to political science and partly because his ...

Rudolf Steiner, Life and Work

“All we can do is try to gain a clear picture of the situation and really live with that knowledge. We must remember that thoughts are actual, dynamic forces. All we can do now is think matters through clearly. Living with these true thoughts for just two days before being drawn in again by the black magic of journalism will make a difference. And the time might come when we can use this to ...

Memories of Rudolf Steiner and Marie Steiner-von Sivers

I rang the bell, the door opened, and there stood Rudolf Steiner in person. I was so taken aback that I dropped the basket, which burst open and all my clothes and underclothes, together with my other belongings, were lying at the feet of the Doctor. A ball of wool got away and rolled between Dr Steiner’s feet into the long corridor. Somewhat surprised, but amused, he said, “I have never been ...
