Who Was Ita Wegman
A Documentation, Volume 3: 1924–1935: Struggles and Conflicts
Rudolf Steiner and anthroposophy are known and active around the world and finding increasing recognition. This has led to a growing interest in the history of the anthroposophic movement and the lives of anthroposophic pioneers, one of which was Ita Wegman. The four volumes of the most complete biography chart the life of Ita Wegman and offers fresh insight into both Dr. Wegman and her teacher, coworker, and dear friend Rudolf Steiner. These books, as well as their extensive notes and appendices, enable readers to delve imaginatively into the lives of these remarkable individuals who brought anthroposophic medicine into existence.
This volume of Ita Wegman’s biography focuses upon the reasons for her exclusion from the Executive Council of the General Anthroposophic Society in 1935 as well as her being relieved from the leadership of the Medical Section. In certain circles within the anthroposophic movement, there developed an opposition to Ita Wegman that led to her exclusion from the Society. Here, J. E. Zeylmans van Emmichoven helps us to understand the complex relationships and incisive events that occurred during this time.
