What Is Anthroposophy? Three Perspectives on Self-Knowledge by Rudolf Steiner

Selected and Introduced by Christopher Bamford. June 2002. 96 pages.

This is one of those books that can change your life. Radical, thought-provoking, and indeed mind-boggling, it leads to a completely new way of looking at what it means to be human—a spiritual being in a universe that itself is not just physical, but also psychic and spiritual.

These three previously untranslated lectures are a masterly introduction to what Rudolf Steiner means by Anthroposophy—which means literally “the wisdom of the human being.” Steiner describes this path as one that “unites what is spiritual in the human being with what is spiritual in the universe.”
