About the Author
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was born in the small village of Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia), where he grew up. As a young man, he lived in Weimar and Berlin, where he became a well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known especially for his work with Goethe's scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings. The influence of Steiner's multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, various therapies, philosophy, religious renewal, Waldorf education, education for special needs, threefold economics, biodynamic agriculture, Goethean science, architecture, and the arts of drama, speech, and eurythmy. In 1924, Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world. He died in Dornach, Switzerland.

A review of Rudolf Steiners lectures concerning adolescents
on 22 August 2006 - Published on Amazon.com
The lectures in this volume can be confusing for someone approaching them with out any previous exposure to Rudolf Steiners work. Anyone who spends the necessary time and attention to enter into the activity of this individual will sooner or later be overcome with a feeling which could be expressed as follows- This mans work does not only give me some new ideas and connect some thoughts which I had preiously not brought together, the WAY he speaks and writes and the ideas he develops inspire me to live, to enter into the various realms which he speaks of and actively take part in thier forming. The ideas seem not to simply call to me from my brain but from the world around me. In the case of this book it is the activity of teaching which he is addressing. He approaches the mysterious phase of human existence we call adolescence and brings forth ideas which illumine what can otherwise be a very confusing experience for a teacher. These lectures were however not meant to stand alone but were prefaced by a series of lectures entitled "The Study of Man", which were delivered to many of the same teachers. The teachers present were familier with his main written works which appeared earlier such as The Philosophy of freedom and An Outline of esoteric science. These teachers were the pioneers of the now famous waldorf school movement. I recommend this work, given the above thoughts, to anyone seeking a deeper understanding of teaching teenagers.
