The Philosophy Of Freedom Study Course

Master the Content
George O'Neil described study of The Philosophy of Freedom in this way: "First, we immerse ourselves within the text to master the content, eliminating personal preference and emphasis. Then, unexpected meanings emerge, revealing interdependence and symmetries that weave the single thoughts into a whole."
Says Goethe: "To have the whole thing in your heart, you must have conned its every part."
To which Rudolf Steiner added: "First read for substance, then read again for form."
