Study of Man: General Education Course

Overview

Although these lectures were given to teachers as preparatory material, theyare by no means concerned only with education. Study of Man is Steiner's most succinct presentation of his humancentered spiritual psychology, and it is accessible to anyone genuinely interested in the questions of human existence. His approach is unique because it considers not only the influences that affect humanity from the past, but also future states of consciousness and being.

More About This Book

Overview

Although these lectures were given to teachers as preparatory material, theyare by no means concerned only with education. Study of Man is Steiner's most succinct presentation of his humancentered spiritual psychology, and it is accessible to anyone genuinely interested in the questions of human existence. His approach is unique because it considers not only the influences that affect humanity from the past, but also future states of consciousness and being.

Reprinted here in the original "classic" translation by A.C. Harwood and Helen Fox, these lectures were given in 1919 to the teachers of the Waldorf school in Stuttgartthe first to be based on the educational ideas of Rudolf Steiner. After eightyfive years of Waldorf educationand exponential growth around the worldthis volume remains the basic study text for teachers in Steiner schools. As well as providing a basis for the work of educators, Study of Man will be of special interest to parents, counselors, psychologists, and students of Rudolf Steiner's philosophyfor whom this volume provides a fundamental picture of the human being according to the anthroposophic understanding of the world.

About the Author:
Rudolf Steiner (18611925) became a respected and wellpublished scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, particularly known for his work on Goethe's scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his earlier philosophical principles into an approach to methodical research of psychological and spiritual phenomena. His multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, philosophy, religion, education (Waldorf schools), special education (the Camphill movement), economics, agriculture (biodynamics), science, architecture, and the arts (drama, speech and eurythmy). In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which has branches throughout the world.
