Study of Man is Steiner's most succinct presentation of his human-centered spiritual psychology, and it is accessible to anyone genuinely interested in the questions of human existence. His approach is unique because it considers not only the influences that affect humanity from the past, but also future states of consciousness and being. Reprinted here in the original "classic" translation by A.C. Harwood and Helen Fox, these lectures were given in 1919 to the teachers of the Waldorf school in Stuttgart--the first to be based on the educational ideas of Rudolf Steiner. After eighty-five years of Waldorf education--and exponential growth around the world--this volume remains the basic study text for teachers in Steiner schools. As well as providing a basis for the work of educators, Study of Man will be of special interest to parents, counselors, psychologists, and students of Rudolf Steiner's philosophy--for whom this volume provides a fundamental picture of the human being according to the anthroposophic understanding of the world. This book is a translation of Allgemeine Menschenkunde als Grundlage der Padagogik (GA 293), published by Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach.

    This book is so interesting. There are chapters that I blazed through, easily reading, understanding and agreeing with the content. There were chapters that I got incredibly angry at (some of which I'm still at odds with LOL). This is not a book to passively read. It's a book to study (preferably with others) and then experiment with. It's a work book - a 'book in progress'. A book to reread in small portions. Don't dismiss its contents without testing them out. Some things in here are not for m This book is so interesting.

Don't dismiss its contents without testing them out. Some things in here are not for me (or not for me yet), but I've been very amazed by the outcomes of some of the things I've implemented in my teaching. As one of the "Birkenstock crowd" (as one of the reviewers typifies me..tsk haha), I can say: it may not the holy grail of books, but it certainly is a magical book if you are willing to open your mind and get your hands dirty.

    Still working on this one. The Physics teacher at my school and I have had some interesting discussions about Steiner's views contained in this book as they relate to philosophy, science, and human development. Whether you're an anthroposophist or not, they're certainly interesting ideas. Take what you will from them, I say. To be continued. “There are some books you are never done reading.” Still working on this one.

    Required read in my 2nd year Waldorf Teacher Training course. Essential Steiner. For some reason, I know I wrote reports on each chapter of this book (over 10 yrs. ago) but I can't remember anything specific. I wasn't as awed by Steiner when I read this or something.

    Good grief, I had to read this for teacher training. The birkenstock crowd treated this book like the HolyGrail/Bible/ of life. Get a grip! It provides some interesting insights into human development, but I could do without the holy of holies drama!
