Thoroughly revised and updated, this important volume describes the character, intentions, and working methods of the pioneering School of Spiritual Science, as established by Rudolf Steiner within the framework of the reestablished Anthroposophical Society in 1924. It explains the School’s prerequisites for membership and examines the role of the First Class and its representatives’ responsibilities.

The main body of the book features descriptions of the sections within the School of Spiritual Science, contributed by individuals responsible for leadership of those sections. They indicate how the School connects with daily work in various aspects of life—including medicine, agriculture, education, science and the arts—and how they relate to contemporary society. Also included are significant articles and lectures by Steiner regarding his original intentions for the School, and practical information on the process of becoming a member.

In keeping with the transparency that Steiner called for, The School of Spiritual Science is available to anyone who wants to explore the work of this invaluable cultural institution.
