The second book we read in teacher training. Cosmic, evolution of the world. Our world has been created, destroyed, held in suspension, then recreated several times. Steiner starts with the Saturnian man, following evolution throught Atlantean, Lemurian, etc. epochs. The pralayas are the in between times. Fascinating. When I saw the Matrix, it reminded me of this book. Powerful, but dense. You have to be serious to read this one, but it's one of my faves. I <3 Steiner.
Though I'll have to re-read this multiple times, it served as an intro to my interest in the occult. This book covers everything from Theosophy to Atlantis to the Pleiadians. Rudolf Steiner coined the term 'Supersensible Science', and gave license to define scientific methods purely by intuition. His musings have become a foundation for my entry into and understanding of the metaphysical.
An absolute essential book for everyone interested in anthroposophy, spirituality and self-growth. Things depicted in this book should be taught in schools and I'm sure they will one day. But these times are still far away.
I haven't actually finished this book. Things started to fly over my head so I decided to put it down for a time, but it was refreshing to be so challenged in the subject of reading comprhension. I will finish it, someday.

Written by the first true Initiate after the age of Science. Don't agree with his description of the planet's evolution etc., but there's a lot of real Wisdom in this one. Advanced Students will be pleasantly surprised.

ok, this was one of the coolest of Steiner! Don't let the title fool ya! Mainstream think of "occult" as being satanic. Give up the outdated, ignorant notions!

Read thru 16%, realized this book isn't what I was expecting, nor was it something I was willing to give anymore time to.

Steiner was a philosopher, social thinker, architect, and esotericist.

"Steiner led this movement through several phases. In the first, more philosophically oriented phase, Steiner attempted to find a synthesis between science and mysticism; his philosophical work of these years, which he termed spiritual science, sought to provide a connection between the cognitive path of Western philosophy and t...more
