A Graphic Introduction

Illustrated by Lato

Click for a large cover of RUDOLF STEINER AND ANTHROPOSOPHY.

Combining Lía Tummer’s lucid text and Lato’s creative and playful illustrations, Rudolf Steiner and Anthroposophy is a highly-engaging and unique ‘graphic’ introduction that is suitable for both the curious beginner and the dedicated student.

At the dawn of the twentieth century, Rudolf Steiner presented anthroposophy as a ‘spiritual science’ that expanded upon the restricted, scientific–materialist ideology of his time. Based on a profound knowledge of human beings and our relationship with nature and the universe, anthroposophy not only provides rejuvenating impulses for the most diverse spheres of human activity – such as medicine, education, agriculture, art and science – but also provides answers to the eternal questions posed by humankind, and on which contemporary science remains indifferent: What is life? Where do we come from when we are born? Where do we go when we die? What is the meaning of pain and illness? Why do people experience such differing challenges in their lives?

This charming book depicts the development of a universal genius, from his childhood in the untamed beauty of the Austrian Alps to the sublimities of human wisdom; from his work as a Goethe scholar to the building of the extraordinary Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland.

LÍA TUMMER works as a German and English translator. Her first contact with anthroposophy came with studying in Waldorf schools. Through reading and translating anthroposophical texts, she has become knowledgeable in all its fields.

LATO (Horacio Santana) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has illustrated stories for Dartagnan, El Tony, Fantasía and other popular magazines and has created images for introductory books on Henry Miller and the art of Tango.
