Study volumes

From Anthroposophy

Introduction and scope

This website is intended as a front end or communication vehicle for the FMC initiative. It contains a.o. three pilot subsite(s) to guide and support the study process on a specific topic (Christ and MoG, reincarnation, and the Golden Chain), as well as a section for essays.

Another important aspect of the vision and intention is to publish the output of the project in Advanced Study Volumes which are a bit less volatile and more practical for earnest students then a website. In other words: we want to put these in the world so they can continu to exist and be shared and used for personal study offline.

Thinking about publishing includes:

  1. Advanced Study Volumes - existing content selected as reference materials from secondary literature and that provides a unique foundation for study. The Advanced Study Volumes could be scoped per topic (eg Christ, or Elementary Kingdoms, the etheric formative forecs ..) or per author (eg Maximilian Rebholz, Oskar Kürten, ..).
  2. An overview 'best of' anthroposophical secondary literature, complementing the GA Collected Works with the life work of great anthroposophists in one century of spiritual science. Hence the acronym Standing on the Shoulders of Giants (SoSoG)
  3. Last, the original materials and reference files from the Free Man Creator initiative. These are extensive and so could be made available in digital format.
