作者 Introductions to Goethe's Natural-Scientific Writings (CW 1)
Rudolf Steiner Translated by William Lindeman

  • The Chadwick Library Edition is an endeavor to republish—mostly in new or
    thoroughly revised English translations—several written works of Rudolf Steiner.
    The edition is named for the late horticulturist Alan Chadwick, whose life and
    work has served as inspiration to the small group from which the idea originated.
    Our extensive experience with special bindings led to the selection—for this
    “trade edition” of 750 books—of a leather spine binding, cloth sides, and a
    light slipcase. For the hand-numbered edition (100 books), the binding is full leather
    with a hand-gilt top of the pages in a fine, stiff, cloth-covered slipcase. The leather
    is blue calfskin, and the title stamping on the spines is in genuine gold leaf. All of
    this will be carried out by hand at one of the finest binders, Ruggero Rigoldi.

Goethean Science features Rudolf Steiner’s introductions to Goethe’s works, re-visioning
the meaning of knowledge and how we attain it. Goethe had discovered how thinking could
be applied to organic nature and that this experience requires not just rational concepts but
a whole new way of perceiving.

At the youthful age of twenty-one, Steiner was chosen to edit Goethe’s scientific writings for
the principle Geothe edition of his time. Goethe’s literary genius was universally acknowledged;
it was Steiner’s task to understand and comment on Goethe’s scientific achievements. Steiner
recognized the significance of Goethe’s work with nature and his epistemology, and here began
Steiner’s own training in epistemology and spiritual science. 

In an age when science and technology have been linked to great catastrophes, many are
looking for new ways to interact with nature. With a fundamental declaration of the
interpenetration of our consciousness and the world around us, Steiner shows how Goethe’s
approach points the way to a more compassionate and intimate involvement with nature.
