Wahrheit und Wissenschaft

Book Cover Image Vorspiel einer «Philosophie der Freiheit»
Seine 1892 erstmals als erweiterte Buchausgabe unter dem Titel «Wahrheit und Wissenschaft» erschienene Dissertation über Erkenntnistheorie bezeichnete Rudolf Steiner zu Recht als «Vorspiel einer ‹Philosophie der Freiheit›», denn alle zentralen Punkte des späteren Hauptwerkes sind hier im Keim angelegt.

Truth and Knowledge (1963 edition)

Book Cover Image This work, essentially Steiner's doctoral dissertation, which is subtitled “Introduction to the Philosophy of Freedom.” is just that: an essential work in the foundations of anthroposophy in which the epistemological foundations of spiritual cognition are clearly and logically laid forth.

It was bundled together with The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity in the same volume. These books were translated by Rita Stebbing.


. Truth and Knowledge (1981 edition)
Book Cover Image This edition appears to have the same content as the 1963 edition above. In this case, it was not bundled with any other book ... just the second printing of Truth and Knowledge, translated by Rita Stebbing.
