    GOETHE'S THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE

    GOETHE'S THEORY OF KNOWLEDGE

    An Outline of the Epistemology of His Worldview

    As the editor of Goethe's scientific writings during the 1880s, Rudolf Steiner became immersed in a worldview that paralleled and amplified his own views in relation to epistemology, the interface between science and philosophy, the theory of how we know the world and ourselves. At the time, like much of the thinking today and the foundation of modern natural science, the predominant theories held that individual knowledge is limited to thinking that reflects objective, sensory perception. Steiner's view was eventually distilled in his Anthroposophical Leading Thoughts in 1924.

    NECESSITY AND FREEDOM

    NECESSITY AND FREEDOM

    Paperback

    The age-old question of free will is still a mystery to most people today. Even religious and philosophical circles have difficulty reconciling the concepts of morality, destiny, karma, and necessity with true freedom. Steiner illuminates questions of freedom and necessity, and guilt and innocence, by discussing various aspects of evolution, history, and culture and showing that human beings carry the responsibility for these developments. He shows that the past represents necessity, whereas true freedom belongs to the future.

    THE PHILOSOPHY OF SPIRITUAL ACTIVITY

    THE PHILOSOPHY OF SPIRITUAL ACTIVITY

    Since this book was written more than a century ago, many have tried to discover the kind of new thinking that can help us better understand the spiritual, ecological, social, political, and philosophical issues that face us. Steiner showed a path that leads from ordinary thinking to the level of pure spiritual activity - true inner freedom

    THE REDEMPTION OF THINKING

    A Study in the Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas

    Steiner begins these three lectures by depicting the background of early Christian thought, from which scholastic philosophers arose. He focuses on the "unanswered question" of the scholastic movement: How can human thinking be made Christlike and develop toward a vision of the spiritual world?

    THE RIDDLES OF PHILOSOPHY

    THE RIDDLES OF PHILOSOPHY

    Presented in an Outline of Its History

    This classic volume, unavailable for a long time, is not a history of philosophy in the usual sense of the word. It does not give a history of the philosophical systems, nor does it present a number of philosophical problems historically. Its real concern touches on something deeper - on riddles rather than problems.

    TRUTH AND KNOWLEDGE

    TRUTH AND KNOWLEDGE

    Introduction to The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity

    This work, essentially Rudolf Steiner's doctoral dissertation, subtitled 'Introduction to the Philosophy of Freedom' is just that - an essential work in the foundations of spiritual science. The epistemological foundations of spiritual knowledge are clearly and logically presented.

    Reflective Encounters in Experiencing the World

    RICHARD BUNZL

    What are our memories and feelings? What are ideas? What is the nature of time? How do our thoughts connect with the world at large? Is freedom of thought an illusion, or a possibility worth striving for?

    Otto Palmer

    Much has been written on The Philosophy of Freedom, but the advantage of discovering what the author himself had to say about this most important and seminal work is obvious. Not only were the words of the text chosen most carefully, but also its very structure was intended to become a powerful inner experience for the careful reader. Otto Palmer has provided an invaluable service by extracting numerous references from the words of Rudolf Steiner, providing keys to the deeper meanings behind the words.

    Scientific Research Suggested by Rudolf Steiner

    Paul-Eugen Schiller

    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.
