Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path by Rudolf Steiner

Book Description

Of all of his works, "Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path" is the one that Steiner himself believed would have the longest life and the greatest spiritual and cultural consequences. It was written as a phenomenological account of the results of observing the human soul according to the methods of natural science. This seminal work asserts that free spiritual activity--understood as the human ability to think and act independently of physical nature--is the suitable path for human beings today to gain true knowledge of themselves and of the universe. This is not merely a philosophical volume, but rather a warm, heart-oriented guide to the practice and experience of living thinking. Readers will not find abstract philosophy here, but a step-by-step account of how a person may come to experience living, intuitive thinking-- the conscious experience of a purely spiritual content. During the past hundred years since it was written, many have tried to discover this new thinking that could help us understand the various spiritual, ecological, social, political, and philosophical issues facing us. But only Rudolf Steiner laid out a path that leads from ordinary thinking to the level of pure spiritual activity--intuitive thinking--in which we become co-creators and co-redeemers of the world. When, with the help of Steiner s book, we recognize that thinking is an essentially spiritual activity, we discover that it can school us. In that sense--Steiner s sense--thinking is a spiritual path (Gertrude Reif Hughes).

Books By Author Rudolf Steiner

Rose Cross Meditation by Rudolf Steiner Rose Cross Meditation, Paperback (May 2016)

The Rose Cross meditation is central to the western - Rosicrucian - path of personal development as presented by Rudolf Steiner. Steiner repeatedly referred to the meditation as a 'symbol of human development' that illustrates the transformation of the human being's instincts and desires.

Awakening to Community by Rudolf Steiner Awakening to Community, Paperback (May 2016)

Steiner calls for a "searching of conscience." He explains that in anthroposophic communities we can experience our first awakening to the spirit in our encounters with others, and he describes how the reversed cultus" forms the foundation for a new community life.

Electronic Doppelganger by Rudolf Steiner Electronic Doppelganger, Paperback (May 2016)

In an increasingly digitised world, where both work and play are more and more taking place online and via screens, Steiner's dramatic statements from 1917 appear prophetic. Speaking of 'intelligent machines' that would appear in the future, he presents a broad context that illustrates the multitude of challenges human beings will face.

Music by Rudolf Steiner Music, Paperback (May 2016)

What is music? Rudolf Steiner regards the essence of music as something spiritual, inaudible to the senses. The world of tones, borne on the vibrations of air, is not the essential element. 'The true nature of music, the spiritual element in music', he says, 'is found between the tones, lies in the intervals as an inaudible quality.'
