About the Author
RUDOLF STEINER (1861-1925) became a respected and well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, particularly known for his work on Goethe's scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his earlier philosophical principles into an approach to methodical research of psychological and spiritual phenomena. His multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, philosophy, religion, education (Waldorf schools), special education (the Camphill movement), economics, agriculture (biodynamics), science, architecture, and the arts (drama, speech and eurythmy). In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which has branches throughout the world.

Interesting to me as well that a young fascist with the first name Adolph accused Steiner of treason. In all systems of dialectic materialism the poets, the intellectuals and those who believe in spirit must be destroyed because they hold the truth that a mechanistic worldview is a falsification of reality. If I see my neighbor as machine no telling what evil I may do to him. It is not personal because these are not human beings. Steiner's work and later the work of Einstein, Plack, Bohm and others destroy this fallacy.
Scharmer's work builds on all these and helps lead us out of the devastating view of the world that sees all of our current social systems on the brink of collapse. Steiner dismantles the worldview they are built upon. Scharmer takes his work and gives us a very personal, relational, spiritual approach allowing us a life giving sustainable model.
The book is not an easy read as it is a translation from the German and much time is given at first to help us with the translation. However, I believe it is very much worth the effort.
