  • Description or summary of the book: Of all of his works, Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path is the one that Steiner himself believed would have the longest life and the greatest spiritual and cultural consequences. It was written as a phenomenological account of the 'results of observing the human soul according to the methods of natural science. This seminal work asserts that free spiritual activity-understood as the human ability to think and act independently of physical nature-is the suitable path for human beings today to gain true knowledge of themselves and of the universe. This is not merely a philosophical volume, but rather a warm, heart-oriented guide to the practice and experience of living thinking. Readers will not find abstract philosophy here, but a step-by-step account of how a person may come to experience living, intuitive thinking-'the conscious experience of a purely spiritual content.' During the past hundred years since it was written, many have tried to discover this 'new thinking' that could help us understand the various spiritual, ecological, social, political, and philosophical issues facing us. But only Rudolf Steiner laid out a path that leads from ordinary thinking to the level of pure spiritual activity-intuitive thinking-in which we become co-creators and co-redeemers of the world. 'When, with the help of Steiner's book, we recognize that thinking is an essentially spiritual activity, we discover that it can school us. In that sense-Steiner's sense-thinking is a spiritual path' (Gertrude Reif Hughes).
