    Rudolf Steiner, the often undervalued, multifaceted genius of modern times, contributed much to the regeneration of culture. In addition to his philosophical teachings, he provided ideas for the development of many practical activities including education--both general and special--agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, religion, and the arts. Today there are thousands of schools, clinics, farms, and many other organizations based on his ideas.

    Steiner's original contribution to human knowledge was based on his ability to conduct spiritual research, the investigation of metaphysical dimensions of existence. With his scientific and philosophical training, he brought a new systematic discipline to the field, allowing for conscious methods and comprehensive results. A natural seer from childhood, he cultivated his spiritual vision to a high degree, enabling him to speak with authority on previously veiled mysteries of life.

    Topics include:

    the origins and nature of architecture
    the formative influence of architectural forms
    the history of architecture in the light of human spiritual evolution
    new architecture as a means of uniting with spiritual forces
    art and architecture as manifestations of spiritual realities
    metamorphosis in architecture
    aspects of a new form of architecture
    the first and second Goetheanum buildings
    the architecture of a community in Dornach
    the temple is the human being
    the restoration of the lost temple
