Im sp ten 19. Jahrhundert verfasste Abhandlung ber die wissenschaftliche Deutung der Weltanschauung Goethes. -- "Goethes Ansichten waren nie Ausgangspunkt wissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen, sondern stets nur Vergleichsobjekte. Die sich mit ihm besch ftigten, waren selten Sch ler, die sich unbefangenen Sinnes seinen Ideen hingaben, sondern zumeist Kritiker, die ber ihn zu Gericht sa en. . Nun aber wurde mir an meinen Goethe-Studien klar, wie meine Gedanken zu einem Anschauen vom Wesen der Erkenntnis f hren, das in Goethes Schaffen und seiner Stellung zur Welt berall hervortritt. Ich fand, dass meine Gesichtspunkte mir eine Erkenntnistheorie ergaben, die die der Goetheschen Weltanschauung ist." --Nachdruck der originalen Zweitauflage von 1924.

About the author (2012)

Austrian-born Rudolf Steiner was a noted Goethe (see Vol. 2) scholar and private student of the occult who became involved with Theosophy in Germany in 1902, when he met Annie Besant (1847--1933), a devoted follower of Madame Helena P. Blavatsky (1831--1891). In 1912 he broke with the Theosophists because of what he regarded as their oriental bias and established a system of his own, which he called Anthroposophy (anthro meaning "man"; sophia sophia meaning "wisdom"), a "spiritual science" he hoped would restore humanism to a materialistic world. In 1923 he set up headquarters for the Society of Anthroposophy in New York City. Steiner believed that human beings had evolved to the point where material existence had obscured spiritual capacities and that Christ had come to reverse that trend and to inaugurate an age of spiritual reintegration. He advocated that education, art, agriculture, and science be based on spiritual principles and infused with the psychic powers he believed were latent in everyone. The world center of the Anhthroposophical Society today is in Dornach, Switzerland, in a building designed by Steiner. The nonproselytizing society is noted for its schools.
