Basic Reading ...
With all of this material staring you in the face, the question arises,
“Just where do I start? ... How do I begin to make sense of all
this information?” You are not alone in thinking this. Everyone
who has been piqued by the ideas presented by Rudolf Steiner has had
these same thoughts!
By starting with the Five Basic Books, detailed below, you will have
access to those ideas Dr. Steiner thought to be at the foundation of
all his later, more advanced anthroposophical writings and lecture
courses. This is where to start.
The Waldorf or Steiner School movement is one of the largest private
school systems in the world. There are numerous Steiner schools in
the United States with programs from kindergarten through high school.
In 1930 Adolph Arenson published his monumental three-volume concordance
titled Ein Führer Durch die Vortragszyklen Rudolf Steiners
(1–50) — “A Guide to the Lecture Cycles of Rudolf
Steiner (1–50)” (Berlin, Selbstverlag, Not Translated).
This work — now out of print and exceedingly rare — is of
the greatest aid to the student who can read German. Works presented
here are those lecture cycles in the Arenson 1–50 which have
been translated into English.
