  • Statement of Purpose and Intent

    Many people have asked “what is the intent and/or purpose of this Archive” — or words to that effect. This document should answer almost all of those questions. Other questions will be tackled as the need arises.

    What we have here is a Library: just like the community-based libraries that are all over the world, we have books, reference materials, and various printed media for use by its patrons. We also have the tools necessary to find the information that is sought by those patrons. Be it catalogues, indexes, or whatever, the tools are in place. Also like your local library, we are striving to provide what is of interest to the “community”, and to supply the newest and best tools.

    The simile continues in that all of the materials presented for patron use are either purchased, or have been donated. The “community” is invited to take advantage of this wealth of information to better the individuals, and ultimately, strengthen the “community”. This will “rub off” on the adjacent communities, and … Well, you know how it goes? We all affect one another.

    We are a type of lending institution. Our offerings are for the use of the patrons, not to be kept, but to be returned so that others can take advantage of the materials. If you want to have your own copy of some of what we offer, we suggest that you buy that item. We encourage everyone to create their own library by buying those books, pictures, or other items for themselves. The rule is: use, don’t abuse. Continue reading  Post ID 54

    “Accumulating information is the first step toward knowledge, sharing information is the first step toward community.” — The e.Librarian

    The Rudolf Steiner Archive is our gift to Anthroposophy, the world-wide Anthroposophical Movement in general, and to the Spiritual Community of Man. Here, we offer summaries of Rudolf Steiner’s books translated from the original German to English, a catalogue of Steiner’s holdings, a chronological listing of Steiner’s lectures (over 6000), and most of his books, in German and English, and hundreds of lectures, articles and essays for interested readers to contemplate. If nothing else, the topics covered should make you think — and that is good. This is an ongoing project — there will always be new information presented here. We welcome you to an adventure in Spiritual Science.
