The Riddles of the Soul
The title, Riddles of the Soul. Anthropology and anthroposophy,
Max Dessoir about anthroposophy, Franz Brentano (an obituary).
Sketchy extensions, says a lot. The statements in this publication
that Rudolf Steiner pulls “some of the scientific threads that
need to be drawn from the philosophy of anthroposophy, the psychology
and physiology.” The significant finding of tripartism of the
human organism finds its first representation here.
Another version of this volume is, The Case For Anthroposophy.
It contains English translations of eight of the eleven essays appearing
in the German original. The three sections in the German original
which do not appear in the English translation are: Max Dessoir on
Anthroposophy, Franz Brentano (a memorial address), and The Separation
of the Psychological from the Non-Psychological in Franz Brentano.
This version of Von Seelenrätseln, an abbreviated version,
three of the topics are left out and the title was changed to, The
Case for Anthroposophy. It was published in 1970 by the Rudolf
Steiner Press in London, England, and translated by Owen Barfield.
