The Anthroposophical Society
In 1924 Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society in Dornach, Switzerland, which today has members' groups throughout the world. The Anthroposophical Society aims to nurture the life of the soul on the basis of knowledge of the spirit, in order to foster a sense of community with others working for cultural and spiritual renewal.
Membership is open to anyone, without regard to nationality, social standing, religion, or scientific or artistic conviction.
Rudolf Steiner's writings, lectures, and artistic and practical activities offer a wealth of insights into the spiritual dimensions of our world. Since his death in 1925, many people have sought to continue his research through study, reflection, and meditation, and to apply his research to many areas of human endeavor.
Since its beginning, the primary goal of SteinerBooks has been to make available in English the works of Rudolf Steiner and other anthroposophic authors. In this way, there has been a continuing connection between the press and the Anthroposophical Society.
Here you will find a number of books that detail the beginning of the Anthroposophical Society, as well as its significance for our time.
This work continues to advance spiritual development in the world-both for individuals and for culture as a whole. At the center of the work of the Anthroposophical Society is the School for Spiritual Science at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland:
