Summary

An introduction to the life and work of Rudolf Steiner, a largely undiscovered genius whose work deserves to be far better known. No acquaintance is presupposed, but experienced anthroposophists also stand to gain by listening to it.

Its Steiner so the full complement of stars.

I am studying Steiner education in London propel often ask me about this. it is a good introduction of the mighty mans works.... I didn't know about the companies in Europe using Steiner business models.It looks like Steiner predicted a time when the government was less powerful than the multi national companies.Its been a great reminder of the things we have been learning as there is a lot to remember.

Most people would benefit from listening to this.

A needed and thorough understanding of Steiner

In the on-line world, where the work and life mission of Rudolf Steiner is often distorted or mis-interpreted, Fred Amrine offers us a well written, well researched and creative synthesis of the wide subject matter, which Steiner's works cover. If you have read a significant amount of Steiner's work, this text will review, refresh and re-invigorate your interest. If you have not delved into Steiner's work, this text will inspire you to start.

Brief but accurate treatise on Rudolf Steiner.

Verry good and did not get bogged down as it could have because Steiner is SOOO complex.
