Esoteric Development

Lectures and Writings

Rudolf Steiner Introduction by Stephen E. Usher Revised and Updated by SteinerBooks

208 pp.  



Published:  January 2003


This completely revised edition provides an ordered sequence of statements by Steiner on the development of higher, suprasensory knowing—Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition.

Nine chapters take the reader from the idea of inner development, through the cultural and evolutionary need for higher knowing, and then to examples of the practices and inner gestures required by this work. Steiner describes the necessary steps and stages, always insisting on the free, individual, and cognitive character of anthroposophic spiritual research.
