Spiritual Awakening in a Scientific Age - Lecture 1 'Doorway to Spiritual Science: Rudolf Steiner as Architect'

About this Event

You are cordially invited to attend an exciting lecture series that will introduce the work of Rudolf Steiner from three perspectives. The series of three unique but connected lectures will be held at Innis Town Hall in the University of Toronto St. George Campus. (Click here for detailed directions)

On September 26, Professor Frederick Amrine will introduce Rudolf Steiner's work in general and then focus on his remarkable contributions to architecture. For more on Professor Amrine's talk, see below. This will be followed by a talk by Reverend Jonah Evans on October 17, who will speak on 'Awakening the Gifted Heart: Overcoming Meaninglessness, Burn-out and Untruthfulness in our Time' and then on November 21, a talk by Dr. Kenneth McAlister on 'Breaking the Spell: Metamorphosing science's core paradigm'.

For all three talks, the price is $45.00. Individual talks are $20.

Doorway to Spiritual Science: Rudolf Steiner as Architect

'Rudolf Steiner's work as an architect, both theoretical and practical, is an excellent introduction to his work as a whole. It has been misunderstood in much the same way. Long dismissed as eccentric, Steiner is finally emerging as one of the most important twentieth-century architects. An expressionist par excellence, his work has been reevaluated along with expressionism generally. Dismissed in mid-century as a minor episode, expressionist architecture has surprisingly become the mainstream of architectural development at the end of the twentieth century. My talk will introduce Steiner as an architect, but it also has a very specific thesis, which I will set out to prove.'

Presenter, Frederick Amrine is Arthur F. Thurnau Professor in German Studies at the University of Michigan. He has published over 100 books, principally on Goethe, German idealism, and above all on Rudolf Steiner. He is the translator and editor of several volumes of Steiner's lectures on architecture, available from SteinerBooks. In addition to being the Goethe scholar at the University of Michigan, he is a lifelong student of Rudolf Steiner's philosophy, called anthroposophy. Together with his wife Margot, he is also very involved in the Waldorf education movement.
