1 Review
In this first volume (an essential foundation for understanding the following seven volumes), Steiner presents an overview of the laws and conditions of karma, and to illustrate those principles, he considers the incarnations of Nietzsche, Bacon, Byron, and many others. Given the fact that Rudolf Steiner considered this subject so important that he devoted his last earthly energies to it, all serious anthroposophists should study and carefully contemplate the truths he has presented here and in the following volumes.

About the author (1972)

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.

An architect lecturer, landscape designer, wildlife artist, and photographer.
