Lutterworths ger ut en ny och reviderad upplaga av Geoffrey Aherns klassiska studie av antroposofin, den antroposofiska rörelsen, dess tankegods och historia och dess grundare. Ahern, Sun at Midnight: The Rudolf Steiner Movement and Gnosis in the West. En bok jag definitivt kommer att läsa med störst intresse.
“A revised and updated edition of the book, first published in the Eighties, that still remains the main critical work written from outside the movement.
This engaging introduction to Anthroposophy is written from the unique point of view of the English-speaking outside world. Employing Anthroposophical and external sources alike, Ahern offers an unbiased look into one of the world’s most interesting mystical societies.
Sun at Midnight guides the reader through Anthroposophy’s beginnings as an offshoot of Theosophy, the life of its founder, Rudolf Steiner, and the movement’s place in Western esoteric history while offering an accessible and incisive look into its deeper esoteric beliefs. Waldorf schools and bio-dynamics are woven together with the hardening of spirit into matter to create a fascinating image of Anthroposophy in all its facets.”
