The extraordinary life of Rudolf Steiner and his undoubted powers of clairvoyance are an example of how the mind of a modern man can develop knowledge which covers the whole field of the wisdom both of the Ancient Mysteries and also of modern science. There is no exaggeration in such a statement, for Rudolf Steiner was able to answer questions in mathematics, physics, chemistry, geology, astronomy, medicine, botany, zoology, anthropology, economics, theology, history of philosophy, world-history.

Throughout many years of close co-operation with him I was able to observe this unique phenomenon. Between the years 1919 and 1924 I met Rudolf Steiner at many conferences with the sixty-four teachers of one of the largest private schools in Germany, the Waldorf School at Stuttgart, where more than a thousand children were being educated according to the principles inaugurated by him. At these conferences he was asked all kinds of questions, about methods of teaching in general, about problems of education and the training of the characters of children between the ages of 6 and 18. His opinions were asked about the merits of text-books dealing with all the sciences, or, for example, about which particular theory should form the basis for teaching some particular branch of science. In all these meetings there was a lively development and interchange of ideas on every subject of the school curriculum, from higher mathematics and the sciences to such subjects as music (both theoretical and practical) and gymnastics. To watch Rudolf Steiner dealing with experts in all these subjects, helping and correcting them in his simple, kindly way and going to the root of every problem, was to realize his scientific and human greatness. 33 pages.

Walter Johannes Stein (1891-1957) as a young man became a pupil of Rudolf Steiner, who asked him to teach German literature and history at the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart, Germany, even though his education had been in philosophy, mathematics and physics. He made a deep study of the Parzival story, lectured extensively on this topic, and wrote The Ninth Century and the Holy Grail.
