TOWARDS SOCIAL RENEWAL

Rethinking the Basis of Society

Author : Rudolf Steiner

ISBN : 9781855840720

Publisher : Rudolf Steiner Press

Pages : 144

Format : Paperback

Description : Although this book was first published in 1919, it remains highly relevant to social problems encountered today. Uniquely, Steiner’s social thinking is not based on intellectual theory, but on a profound per¬ception of the archetypal spiritual nature of social life. As he suggests in this classic work, society has three distinct realms—the economic, the political (individual human rights), and the cultural (spiritual). While social life as a whole is a unity, the autonomy of these three sectors should be respected if our increasing social problems are to be resolved.

Steiner relates the ideals of "liberty, equality and fraternity" to mod¬ern society. Economics calls for fraternity, political rights require equality, while cul¬ture should be characterized by liberty. The slogans of the French Revolution, he suggests, can only become truly manifest if our social thinking is transformed to correspond to the spiritual reality.
