About this book
Rudolf Steiner, the multifaceted genius of the twentieth century, contributed much to the renewal of world culture. In addition to his philosophical teachings, he offered ideas for the development of many practical activities, including education, agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, religion, and the arts. Steiner s original contribution to human knowledge was based on his ability to conduct spiritual research, the investigation of metaphysical dimensions of existence. With his scientific and philosophical training, he brought a new systematic discipline to the field, allowing for conscious methods and comprehensive results. A natural seer from childhood, he cultivated his spiritual vision to a high degree, enabling him to speak with authority on previously veiled mysteries of life. This introductory reader collects excerpts from Steiner s many talks and writings on the significance of Christmas. This volume features an editorial introduction, afterword, commentary, and notes by Matthew Barton.
