A pivotal figure of modern isotericism, Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was a clairvoyant and supersensitive with a scientific and philosophical education. He believed that man can gain objective knowledge of higher worlds and apply these insights to all fields of human activity. Anthroposophy, the path of wisdom and knowledge he intiated, plots man’s struggle to attain full spiritual development through the practical application of the forces brought by Christ. Steiner saw the spirit as the creative element in evolution, and his work is increasingly accepted as a practical vitalizing force for today’s world.
Richard Seddon read Moral Sciences (Philosophy and Psychology) at Cambridge University after war service. He has been a student of Anthroposophy for over half a century, including thirty-five years as a council member of the Anthroposophical Society of Great Britain. His other published works are Europa: A Spiritual Biography, The Mystery of Arthur at Tintagel, and The End of the Millennium.
