Introduction by Christopher Bamford

Spiritual Hierarchies and the Physical World - Rudolf Steiner: Ever since nature and consciousness were separated in the late Middle Ages, eventually giving rise to a science of matter alone, the spiritual beings who are the basis of the universe, have been excluded from human endeavour and, as a result, have been unable to complete their work, which depends on human collaboration for its success. Human beings have, on their part, felt abandoned and isolated, no longer feeling a part of the continuum of life.

In The Spiritual Hierarchies and the Physical World, Rudolf Steiner re-establishes the human being as a participant in an evolving, dynamic universe of living spiritual beings. He does so in concrete descriptions and images, capable of being understood by modern conceptual consciousness.

To describe these beings, Steiner uses the names made familiar by the wisdom traditions of the West. He details of the previous evolutionary states of the Earth; the nine ranks of angelic and super-angelic beings; their emissaries, the elemental beings and nature spirits; and the fundamental elements of fire, earth, air, and water.
