What's Old, from 2006, at the Steiner Archive
There are a lot of changes going on around the Steiner Archive:
new formats, new links, additional features. Sometimes it's hard to find
out just what is going on! Well, here is what you've been looking for —
a list of the changes, additions, and coming attractions that occured at
the Archive in 2006.
Some 2006 Changes...
Side by Side Compare ...
program has been added. (as of 12/19/2006):
Our new, Side by Side Compare program will allow serious Steiner
students — really, anyone! — to examine 2 documents
side by side in the same browser window! Whether it is the same
chapter from 2 different translations of a book, or one translation
and the original German text. To access this feature, go to the
Books Section where you'll find
a new column added to the selection area: Cmp, which stands for
Compare. If an entry has a “Yes” in that column, clicking
the Yes will take you to the Compare feature for that volume. The
example above is for
The Philosophy of Freedom.
On This Day ...
feature has been added. (as of 12/11/2006):
Have you ever wondered what lectures Rudolf Steiner gave on a
particular day? Just what was going on 80 or more years ago? The
main page of the site has had a small box on it that gave this
information, but only for the current day. Well, now you
can enter your own date — using a handy date selector —
and the results will be displayed!
Getting started with Rudolf Steiner —
Basics — has been added. (as of 03/20/2006):
With all of this material staring you in the face, the question arises,
“Just where do I start? ... How do I begin to make sense of all
this information?” We are now providing links and short
descriptive texts for a starting point for the works of Rudolf Steiner.
Beginning with the Five Basic Books, readers who are new to this
material will have access to those ideas Dr. Steiner thought to be
at the foundation of all his later, more advanced anthroposophical
writings and lecture courses. This is where to start.
Links to purchase books are now on the site! (as of 01/28/2006):
If you have ever wondered where you could purchase some of the books we
have here at the Archive, now there are links to Amazon.com and/or the
various Anthroposophical publishers on selected pages. Not just anywhere,
but right on the text page of the book, or lecture series. It will
appear just below the image of the cover. By using these links to buy
your books, you will be helping us out monitarily, as part of the price
you pay for the book will come back to the Archive as a commision from
Amazon.com, or the publisher. As we find more book links, we will make
the links available. Please make use of this feature.
