Anyone who undertakes to describe the life of Rudolf Steiner in our time faces a difficult task. He has to write about someone who has left a work so versatile and so profound at the same time that it would take centuries to understand, process and unfold all that he gave.
One can hardly imagine a mind capable of showing, in all the fields in which Rudolf Steiner worked, to what new results, to what entirely new methods of work, above all, this mighty life’s work leads; a mind encompassing and deep enough to describe the human development value of this superhuman creative genius in all the fields in which it worked.
