Origins of Natural Science by Rudolf Steiner
Book Description9 lectures, Dornach, December 24, 1922 - January 6, 1923 (CW 126)"Modern science, and the scientism based on it, so far from being the only possible 'reality principle' is merely one way of conceiving the nature of reality; a way moreover that has arisen only recently and which there is no reason to supose will last forever." Owen Barfield (from the introduction)These talks outline the subtle changes in our ideas and feelings in relation to the development of natural science. Through this, Steiner shows the significance of scientific research and the mode of thinking that goes with it. As we look at what technology has brought us, we may have a feeling like the pain we feel over the death of a loved one. According to Steiner, this feeling of loss will eventually become our most important stimulation to seek the spirit.This book is a translation from German of "Der Entstehungsmoment der Naturwissenschaft in der Weltgeschichte und ihre seitherige Entwicklung" (GA 326)."

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, 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, 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, Paperback (May 2016)» View all books by Rudolf Steiner
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.'
