lectures by Rudolf Steiner
Biography - Rudolf Steiner: The
path of an individual human life—our biography—is something of
a mystery. Despite the abundance of published biographies and
autobiographies of celebrities and historical figures, the
scientific study of human biography remains in its infancy,
with little understanding of the inherent laws in the path of
an individual's life. Yet as Rudolf Steiner shows here, every
biography, regardless of the individual's fame, perceived
importance or outer success, is ruled by archetypal
influences, patterns and laws.
broad-ranging anthology addresses some critical and as yet
unanswered questions: What effects do education - and in
particular contrasting education methods - have on later life?
How do the various periods of life relate to each other? Do
the effects of events on the individual become evident
immediately, or is their true impact delayed - perhaps by
decades? To what extent can an individual shape the stages of
his or her biography? How much freedom of choice do we have,
and how much of life is predetermined?
of the higher knowledge Rudolf Steiner acquired from his
spiritual research, he described the human individuality as a
being with a continuing existence - before birth and beyond
death. This eternal being experiences many varied conditions
and situations, the effects of which are observable in our
biography. This book addresses these and other issues such as
freedom and destiny, the effects of heredity, illness, and the
impact of education, offering answers based on a profound
knowledge of the human being.
