Alan Howard tries in this book to answer a question frequently asked of him: “What did Rudolf Steiner have to say about sex?” Steiner said very little about it, especially in the direct, uninhibited way people expect today. Today, however, we live in a time that can benefit from a discussion of sex in connection with spiritual matters such as reincarnation, karma, and human freedom. Steiner taught that we are spiritual beings who can achieve spiritual autonomy only through repeated lives on Earth, and it is obvious that we can come to Earth only as a result of human sexuality. Thus, sex must be a central fact on which the whole of human spiritual evolution depends.

The author has tried to elaborate certain views based on his own thinking, knowledge, and experience. He acknowledges that they are not authoritative or final, nor are they necessarily “anthroposophic.” He readily admits that he knows of no definitive statement on sex in Steiner’s work to substantiate how on views directly. Based on years of anthroposophic studies, he offers his own views on sexuality in connection with human reincarnation and spiritual freedom.
