Culture, politics, economics — these are the three core activities of society. Social health depends on the harmonious interworking of these three activities which, Steiner says, is possible only if they are sufficiently autonomous so each can find its own essential character. In his foreword, Joseph Weizenbaum observes that the framers of the U.S. Constitution understood this, at least in part, when they developed the constitutional doctrine of separation of church and state.

These essays cover a range of issues with special attention to money, the division of labor, human motivation, and education. They offer refreshing insights into the nature of modern society as well as guidance for solving today's pressing social problems.

The Threefold Order of the Body Social — Volume I

Book Cover Image In the social ferment of postwar Europe in 1919, Steiner presented his ideas about reforming the basis of society in three fundamental, autonomous spheres: economic, political/rights, and cultural. For a short time he worked to bring his ideas into practical application but it soon became impossible to bring about a “threefold social order” and he withdrew from the outer work in this area. His ideas have been worked with over the decades since that time and have proved to be just as valid today as they were then. In this volume is the Introduction to the 2nd German edition of “The Threefold Commonwealth,” GA 23, and an address given by Dr. Rudolf Steiner at a meeting of the League for the Threefold Social Order in Stuttgart, 31st May 1919, entitled, The Impulse Towards the Threefold Order: No Utopia, but the Practical Demand of the Hour (vol. 24 in the Bibliographic Survey).

The Threefold Order of the Body Social — Volume II

Book Cover Image In the social ferment of postwar Europe in 1919, Steiner presented his ideas about reforming the basis of society in three fundamental, autonomous spheres: economic, political/rights, and cultural. For a short time he worked to bring his ideas into practical application but it soon became impossible to bring about a “threefold social order” and he withdrew from the outer work in this area. His ideas have been worked with over the decades since that time and have proved to be just as valid today as they were then. In this second volume are presented two addresses given by Dr. Steiner at study evenings in the year 1920. The first lecture, given on September 15th, is from GA 335, and the second lecture is from GA 337.
