Truth and Knowledge (GA 3)
Truth and Knowledge, essentially Rudolf Steiner's doctoral dissertation, subtitled Introduction to The Philosophy of Freedom," is just that--an essential work in the foundations of spiritual science. In it, the epistemological foundations of spiritual knowledge are clearly and logically presented.
Originally published together with The Philosophy of Freedom in a single volume, this work is fundamental to an understanding of that seminal work (currently published as Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path) and to a more complete comprehension of the philosophical basis of Steiner's spiritual science.
