Theosophy:
An Introduction to the Supersensible Knowledge of the World
and the Destination of Man,
Theosophie. Einfuerung in uebersinnliche Welterkenntnis und Menschenbestimmung.

Rudolf Steiner
(Written 1904; GA 9 / Bn 9)

Rudolf Steiner's book, Theosophy, An Introduction to Supersensible Knowledge of the World and the Destination of Man (published in German as, Theosophie. Einfuerung in uebersinnliche Welterkenntnis und Menschenbestimmung), is a brief but comprehensive “study of man” as well as a consideration of man's connection with worlds with which he is connected in one way or another. It includes both obvious and subtle aspects of that complicated entity known as the human being. This book first appeared in 1904 and has gone through numerous editions in the original German and in English translation.

        The Spiritual Nature of Man
