Rudolf Steiner seldom spoke of himself in a personal way, but in his Autobiography we are offered a rare glimpse into some of the most intimate aspects of his inner life, his personal relationships, and significant events that helped to shape the philosopher, seer, and teacher he became.
This edition restores the original format of seventy chapters, just as Rudolf Steiner wrote them and submitted them to the Goetheanum weekly newsletter. This autobiography is not merely a narrative of his successes and failures, but primarily the story of a soul possessed of a precise and probing scientific mind and a natural clairvoyant ability to see into the spiritual world.
Although naturally clairvoyant, Rudolf Steiner always recognized the integrity and importance of modern scientific methods. Thus he developed a modern discipline he called Anthroposophy and Spiritual Science. During the century that followed the events related in this autobiography, Steiner's insights have touched and enriched numerous areas of life in ways that continue to transform people’s lives in the twenty-first century.
This illustrated, revised, updated, and expanded edition was the first volume to be released in The Collected Works of Rudolf Steiner. This series will eventually collect all of the English translations of Rudolf Steiner's works—including many never before in English—into an attractive and uniform set of his written and spoken words.
