Truth and Knowledge
Introduction to the Philosophy of Spiritual Activity (CW 3)
Written thesis, 1991; published in 1892 by Herman Weissbach, Weimar (CW 3)
This work, essentially Rudolf Steiner’s doctoral dissertation, subtitled “Introduction to the Philosophy of Freedom,” is just that—an essential work in the foundations of spiritual science. In it, the epistemological foundations of spiritual knowledge are clearly and logically presented.
Originally published with The Philosophy of Freedom in a single volume, this work is fundamental to an understanding of that work (Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path) and to a more complete comprehension of the philosophical basis of Steiner’s spiritual science.
This book is essential reading for all serious students of Anthroposophy.
Truth and Knowledge is a translation from German of Wahrheit und Wissenschaft (GA 3).
