The Philosophy of Freedom

Die Philosophie der Freiheit

Rudolf Steiner

(Berlin 1894; GA 4)

This book, written in 1894, is a fundamental treatment of Steiner's philosophical outlook. Together with Truth and Science and The Riddles of Philosophy it might be considered as one third of a philosophical trilogy. The emphasis of the book is not on “freedom” as ordinarily understood, but is on “freiheit” or what might be termed freeness, or freehood. This freeness is a self-starting, self-directing activity of a spiritual sort. Here, the term “spiritual” is used in a sense not incompatible with the use of the word in the tradition of the German idealistic school of philosophy.

We offer the original work, in German, and selected translations for the reader to experience. Our original German edition was donated by Lorenzo Ravagli. , and the Spanish edition by Antonio Aretxabala.

Philosophy of Freedom Selections...

. Die Philosophie der Freiheit
Book Cover Image Das grundlegende Werk Steiners über das Erkennen und die menschliche Freiheit. Die Philosophie der Freiheit beweist, daß der Mensch der Freiheit — des selbstbestimmten Denkens und Handelns — fähig ist. Die Philosophie der Freiheit ist mehr als ein philosophisches Buch: sie ist ein Schulungsweg, der den Leser zur Erfahrung des lebendigen Denkens und zur Bewußtwerdung seines Geistes führt. Aus der Selbsterkenntnis des menschlichen Geistes geht eine Erneuerung des Handelns und damit der Welt hervor.

. The Philosophy of Freedom
Book Cover Image This is the first English translation and the only one sanctioned by Rudolf Steiner himself. Joint translators Prof. and Mrs. R. F. Alfred Hoernlé were selected for their outstanding qualifications. First published in 1916, it is based on the original 1894 German Die Philosophie der Freiheit Other translations have been based on the 1918 revised German edition. It includes inspiring passages about individualism that were removed from the book in 1918 and are missing in later translations: “We no longer believe that there is a norm to which we must all strive to conform. Nothing is accepted as valid, unless it springs from the roots of individuality. The saying ‘Each one of us must choose his hero in whose footsteps he toils up to Olympus’ no longer holds for us. If only we probe deep enough into the very heart of our being, there dwells something noble, something worthy of development.

. Книга: Философия свободы
Book Cover Image Фундаментальный труд о признании Штайнера и свободы человека. Философия свободы доказывает, что человеческие существа свободы - независимые мысли и действия - это способен. Философию свободы, это больше, чем философские книги: это обучение путь, который ведет читателя к опыту живую мысль и сознание в своем уме. От себя человеческого духа исходит возобновление действия и, следовательно, мира.
