An introduction to the supersensible knowledge of the world and the destination of man
- Rudolf Steiner
Originally published in 1904, "Theosophy" is a key work for gaining a solid footing in spiritual reality as described by Rudolf Steiner. He provides an accurate description of his own extra sensory experiences and the extra sensory information revealed through his experiences.
"Theosophy" is organised into four parts. First, Steiner builds a comprehensive understanding of human nature: physical bodily nature; soul qualities; spirit being, or I-being; and the higher spiritual aspects.
In the next section, Steiner offers an extraordinary overview of the laws of reincarnation and the principles of karma, as we pass from one life to the next. This prepares us for the third section, in which he shows the various ways in which we live—during life on earth and after death and in the three worlds of body, soul, and spirit.
Finally, we are given a succinct description of the path of knowledge, along which each person can begin to understand the marvellous and harmonious complexity of the psycho-spiritual worlds in their fullness.
