In her essay—written "with heart and soul" on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the General Anthroposophical Society—Michaela Glöckler engages us in conversations she had regarding the task of this society. They include elementary questions such as: why become a member today? But they also make us aware in an inspiring new way of the task that moved Rudolf Steiner to connect himself with this founding event and with the people who joined it.

It also becomes clear why we can only now grasp the cultural task of this society, where the great challenges and problems of the 21st century are clearly emerging.

In his afterword, Andreas Neider discusses the "culmination" of the anthroposophical movement at the end of the 20th century, as prophesied by Steiner, and comes to a surprising conclusion.
