THREEFOLD TEXTS

THE PHILOSOPHY OF FREEDOM
Revised translation of Steiner's groundbreaking philosophical work on the nature of freedom and thinking. The Philosophy of Freedom demonstrates the fact of freedom -- the ability to think and act independently -- as a possibility for modern consciousness. Read properly, it leads the reader to the experience of presence or living thinking -- new thinking -- by which all human activity may be renewed. This offering is a translation based on the 12th German edition. GA 4

BASIC ISSUES of the SOCIAL QUESTION
This book was written in 1919, just after the First World War, and suggests solutions to the social, political and economic problems of those times. At the end of the book, Steiner writes: "... either people will accommodate their thinking to the requirements of reality, or they will have learned nothing from the calamity and will cause innumerable new ones to occur in the future." History since then has proven these words to be prophetic. The "social question" has not been resolved, nor have steps been taken to initiate the healing process. We all too often look to the political state for the solutions to all social problems, be they of an economic, cultural or political nature. Steiner's concept of a tripartite, or threefold society in which the economic, cultural and political spheres would enjoy relative autonomy within the social organism has not yet been tried. This book contains his basic ideas for the restructuring of society.  GA23
