AUTOBIOGRAPHY

Chapters in the Course of My Life: 1861-1907

Rudolf Steiner seldom spoke of himself in a personal way, but in his Autobiography we are offered a rare glimpse into some of the most intimate aspects of his inner life, his personal relationships, and significant events that helped to shape the philosopher, seer, and teacher he became.

BIOGRAPHY: FREEDOM AND DESTINY

Enlightening the Path of Human Life

The path of an individual human life - our biography - is something of a mystery. Despite the abundance of published biographies and autobiographies of celebrities and historical figures, the scientific study of human biography remains in its infancy, with little understanding of the inherent laws in the path of an individual's life. Yet as Rudolf Steiner shows here, every biography, regardless of the individual's fame, perceived importance or outer success, is ruled by archetypal influences, patterns and laws.

FROM GURS TO AUSCHWITZ

The Inner Journey of Maria Krehbiel-Darmstädter

Peter Selg

Maria Krehbiel-Darmstädter (1892–1943), who was killed at Auschwitz, was a highly gifted pupil of Rudolf Steiner and a member of the Christian Community. Born into a Jewish family in Mannheim, she was deported to Gurs camp in the Pyrénées in October 1940, where she survived harsh conditions and helped many of her fellow inmates. This book offers unique testimony of an individual rooted in esoteric Christianity, who found sources of inner resistance during one of history’s darkest periods. As the portrait of a highly ethical and sorely tried woman amid catastrophic conditions, it describes her existential efforts to summon powers of concentration, meditation and dedication to others, showing how these continued to inform her outlook and actions to the very end.

THE LAST THREE YEARS

Peter Selg

A LIFE FOR THE SPIRIT

Rudolf Steiner in the Crosscurrents of our Time

Henry Barnes

Henry Barnes shows how Rudolf Steiner's own biographical development mirrors the development of anthroposophy and how both of these unfold in response to the desperate needs and challenges of the times. With extensive excerpts from Steiner's own writings, this informative and inspiring volume serves as an excellent overview of Rudolf Steiner's life and work.

MEMORIES OF RUDOLF STEINER

and Marie Steiner-von Sivers

Anna Samweber

‘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 greeted in this way.”’

RUDOLF STEINER

An Illustrated Biography

Johannes Hemleben

Rudolf Steiner's legacy is remarkable. Around the world, thousands of initiatives have been built up around his inspiration and thought, including Steiner Waldorf schools, special education establishments, medical clinics, biodynamic farms, cultural centres, and much more. At the core of this outer work stands the scientific and spiritual path which Steiner called anthroposophy - a philosophy and method which he expounded and developed throughout his life.

RUDOLF STEINER A BIOGRAPHY

Limited-edition hardcover!

Christoph Lindenberg

This biography should contribute to a greater understanding of Rudolf Steiner. Whoever follows his life will get the impression that, from a certain point on, his constant attempt was to awake, in numerous ways, an active, working understanding for Anthroposophy. Steiner used creative imagination to treat particular themes and tasks, ever anew, and in many forms. If we observe the variations of those presentations, we see in them the intentions that guided his whole life. A biography that shows Steiner's intentions and efforts in the context of the times and his life circumstances will not only relate what happened, but also why. His work does not, as in many modern biographies, disappear behind the life story.

RUDOLF STEINER, LIFE AND WORK

Volume 1 (1861–1890): Childhood, Youth, and Study Years

Peter Selg

“This biography does not aim for completeness, but focuses on Rudolf Steiner’s being, intentions, and journey—aspects that must not be obliterated by the many events, foundations, and people involved with Anthroposophy.... It wants to convey (to quote Emil Leinhas) ‘the immense greatness and unique significance of this individuality who radiates out over the centuries.’” —Peter Selg (from the introduction)

RUDOLF STEINER, LIFE AND WORK

Volume 2 (1890-1900): Weimar and Berlin

Peter Selg

“It makes no sense to stop where Goethe stood. Yet we cannot progress unless we absorb Goethe deeply and allow ourselves to be wholly inspired by the impulses he brought into the world. This cannot be achieved as quickly as people today would like this to happen. There is nothing for it; anyone who was careless enough to live at the end of the nineteenth century must bear it.” —Rudolf Steiner, July 18, 1891

Volume 3 (1900–1914) Spiritual Science and Spiritual Community

Peter Selg

“Without new impulses humanity will be overwhelmed and paralyzed—in ways we cannot even imagine today—by the domination of mere outer technology. Humanity will perish because all religious, scientific, philosophical, artistic, and—in a higher sense—ethical interests would be torn from the human soul. Without new spiritual impulses we will become living machines.” —Rudolf Steiner (CW 158)

SPIRITUAL RESISTANCE

Ita Wegman, 1933-1935

Peter Selg

From 1933 to 1935, Ita Wegman was confronted by both Nazi fascism and internal crises in the General Anthroposophical Society. During those years, she travelled to Palestine in the fall of 1934 following a grave illness that nearly ended with her death. Her correspondence during this period, as well as her notes on the trip, reveal the great biographical importance to her of these travels and indeed the whole scope of her spiritual experiences in 1934.
