              Eurythmy Forms for Tone Eurythmy: v. 9

              Eurythmy Forms for Tone Eurythmy: v. 9 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The art of movement called eurythmy began about eighty years ago, based on Rudolf Steiner s knowledge of spiritual beings and meanings behind various human movements, as well as knowledge of the inner spiritual qualities of human beings when we move. Eurythmy performance is chore...ographed according to forms drawn to reflect the inner nature of spoken language (speech eurythmy) or a musical piece (tone eurythmy), which is the subject of Eurythmy Forms for Tone Eurythmy. Steiner produced about 1500 forms for speech and tone eurythmy to be performed in Dornach and other locations. Many of his forms for tone eurythmy arose spontaneously in response to requests for forms from eurythmists. Steiner's spontaneity is readily apparent in the sketches themselves, with some drawn at rehearsals as he listened to the music. Steiner sketched others in the evening after hearing the music once, making them available for rehearsal the next day. When he was confined to bed during his final illness, he drew forms simply by looking at the sheet music. Eurythmy Forms for Tone Eurythmy contains facsimiles of the Rudolf Steiner s original drawings and, in many cases, instructions for performing them. Included are forms for compositions by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Franck, Grieg, Handel, Lewerenz, Liszt, Mozart, Reger, Schubert, Schumann, Scriabin, van Stuten, Tartini, and many more. This is a valuable resource for all eurythmists, as well as for those who wish to gain a better understanding of eurythmy forms. This book is intended primarily for eurythmy students, performers, and teachers, and is also useful to anyone who would like to study eurythmy movements and better appreciate eurythmy performances.

              Freedom of Thought and Societal Forces: Implementing the Demands of Modern Society (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              6 lectures in Ulm, Berlin, and Stuttgart, May 26 December 30, 1919 (CW 333) Freedom of Thought and Societal Forces offers a broad overview of Steiner s fresh thinking on what he called the threefold social order. He acknowledged that the demand for social change derives above all... from the working class, whom industrialization had forced into a kind of indentured life dominated by economics. From Steiner s perspective, the underlying issue is not just economic, however, but also spiritual or cultural culture and the cultured classes have become estranged from real life. Society needed a free culture that includes all classes. It also needs to shift labor into the legal sphere of rights, the only place where workers can find real freedom in society. Capital, too, needs to be liberated from egotism and allowed, like goods, to circulate freely. Above all, Steiner understood that social realities cannot be separated from the spiritual realities of human existence. From this perspective, we lack knowledge of ourselves as spiritual beings, and thinking has become abstract. To remedy this, we must first acknowledge it and then develop modesty and humility. Next we must increase our capacity to love one another and the world. Approaching this reality from another side, we see that what ordinary individual thinking afflicts culture in general, which becomes removed from reality. Culture, like thinking, must become alive and universally human. This is impossible, however, unless we develop what Steiner calls freedom of thought. Authentic freedom of thought is always ethical and overcomes egotism. Indeed, a more general exercise of freedom in thought, as Steiner conceives it, provides a way through the twin dangers of materialism and abstraction that is, through ahrimanic and luciferic worldviews which together threaten society in both the narrow sense through nationalism and globally through geopolitics.

              The Riddles of Philosophy: Presented in an Outline of Its History (Cw 18)

              The Riddles of Philosophy: Presented in an Outline of Its History (Cw 18) (Hardback)

              The translator, Philosophy Professor Fritz Koelln, describes this seminal work: Rudolf Steiner's Riddles of Philosophy: Presented in an Outline of Its History is not a history of philosophy in the usual sense of the word. It does not give a history of the philosophical systems, n...or does it present a number of philosophical problems historically. Its real concern touches on something deeper than this, on riddles rather than problems. Philosophical concepts, systems and problems are, to be sure, to be dealt with in this book. But it is not their history that is to be described here. Where they are discussed they become symptoms rather than the objects of the search. The search itself wants to reveal a process that is overlooked in the usual history of philosophy. It is the mysterious process in which philosophical thinking appears in human history. Philosophical thinking as it is here meant is known only in Western civilization. Oriental philosophy has its origin in a different kind of consciousness, and it is not to be considered in this book. The Chadwick Library Edition represents an endeavor to republish--mostly in new or thoroughly revised English translations--several written works of Rudolf Steiner. The edition is named for the late horticulturist Alan Chadwick, whose life and work has served as inspiration to the small group from which the idea originated. Our extensive experience with special bindings led to the selection--for this trade edition of 750 books--of a leather spine binding, cloth sides, and a light slipcase. For the hand-numbered edition (100 books), the binding is full leather with a hand-gilt top of the pages in a fine, stiff, cloth-covered slipcase. The leather is blue calfskin, and the title stamping on the spines is in genuine gold leaf. All of this is being carried out by hand at one of the finest binders, Ruggero Rigoldi.

              The Threshold of the Spiritual World: Aphoristic Contemplations (Cw 17)

              The Threshold of the Spiritual World: Aphoristic Contemplations (Cw 17) (Hardback)

              By Steiner, Rudolf; Translated by O'Keefe, Thomas

              The Threshold of the Spiritual World contains sixteen short chapters in which Rudolf Steiner provides aphoristic thoughts on trusting one's thinking, cognition of the spiritual world, karma and reincarnation, the astral body and luciferic beings, how to recognize suprasensory con...sciousness, the true nature of love, and much more. This book represents some of Rudolf Steiner's most personal statements about his own spiritual path. He speaks directly from experiences of cognitive research and explorations. Each of the aphorisms arises from his spiritual research and demonstrates how such spiritual research is to be undertaken. The content is Steiner's own, but readers can discover their own content. His method of awareness--a path of attention to one's actual experience--is universal and truly human.

              An Outline of Esoteric Science: The History of Humanity and Spiritual Science, and the Philosophy of Anthroposophy (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Rudolf Steiner's superb thesis provides deep insight into spiritual science, and the history of mankind as viewed through the philosophy of the anthroposophy movement he founded. An Outline of Esoteric Science attempts to reconcile mankind's spiritual being with the scientific ex...actitude which had emerged among scholars in the 19th century. Steiner lays out the spiritual realms which are invisible to us, attempting to use a defined precision similar to that which had emerged in science. In the final section, this book refers to the spiritual development and contemplation necessary for individuals to see the spiritual realms and planes which comprise existence and the universe. The means by which individuals may train themselves introspectively to see are detailed by Steiner, whose theosophical philosophy was, by the time of this book's publication in 1909, well-developed.

              An Outline of Occult Science is Rudolf Steiner's thesis discussing the unknown, the nature of mankind, and his belief that science may be used to explain the unusual phenomena known as the occult. First published in 1910, this book strives to define, categorize and explain variou...s manifestations of the occult. The author concedes at the opening of the book that many otherwise open-minded and receptive individuals immediately recoil from the concept of the the unknown, especially in relation to attempts to investigate it scientifically. After introducing the occult, Steiner delves into explaining the two worlds he thought comprised the reality we live in. The natural world, that which is visible and readily perceivable around us, and the spiritual world, where the unexplained phenomena arise. The nature of man as a bodily being, and how his physical self bridges the gap between these two worlds, is much detailed.

              Chi si limita alla conoscenza del mondo sensibile non pu~ immaginarsi quanto differissero da noi i nostri progenitori dell'Atlantide; e non soltanto nell'aspetto esteriore, ma anche nelle qualit^ dello spirito. Le loro cognizioni, le arti tecniche, tutta la loro cultura era ben d...iversa da quella dei nostri giorni. Osservando l'umanit^ atlantica dei primi tempi, vi troviamo facolt^ spirituali diverse in tutto dalle nostre. L'intelletto razionale, la facolt^ di combinare e di calcolare sulla quale oggi A basato tutto ci~ che si produce, mancavano interamente ai primi Atlanti. Dobbiamo chiarirci che, ogni qualvolta in un essere si sviluppa una nuova facolt^, un'altra perde di forza e d'acutezza. L'uomo odierno possiede, di fronte a quello dell'Atlantide, l'intelletto razionale e la facolt^ combinativa; la memoria invece A venuta meno.

              Rudolf Steiner was a philosopher, social thinker, architect, and esotericist. His philosophical work, which he termed spiritual science, sought to provide a connection between the cognitive path of Western philosophy and the inner and spiritual needs of the human being. In The Wa...y of Initiation, Steiner details the exercises and moral qualities to be cultivated on the path to a conscious experience of 'supersensible' realities. This short but powerful book is intended as a guide for achieving spiritual vision.
