Steiners frühe Ideen zur Entwicklung
Rudolf Steiner’s early thoughts on the concept of evolution are examined with examples of his analysis of Goethe’s organics and contemporary Darwinism. His thoughts were neither overtaken nor rendered superfluous by later advances. He did not abandon them but instead refined and enlarged them. However, the way they are succinctly expressed in the early texts is hard to find elsewhere in Steiner’s works.
