Valentin Tomberg's letter -- from another perspective (Used)
by Harris, Keith (ed)
Publisher: The Western Shores
Book ID: WSVTL, WSVTL
Valentin Tomberg's letter (written in German on the 9. March 1970 to someone who wanted to visit him and discuss his earlier Anthroposophical writings) seems to be causing waves in Anthroposophical circles. Sergei Prokofieff has even written a book with this letter as its centrepiece. This is a strange phenomena to witness especially considering how Rudolf Steiner took pains to emphasise that statements from his own lectures should not be taken out of context, and that only those who had taken the trouble to read and digest his books would be in a position to grasp the fuller significance of what he was speaking about. Apparently such a consideration of taking statements in the context in which they were spoken or written does not apply to certain leading Anthroposophists -- not if they have a chance to cast doubt on the veracity or independence of Valentin Tomberg's spiritual insight. This private letter -- written with a specific purpose in mind -- is wafted about as though it were a last will and testament. Nevertheless Tomberg's letter -- if seen in the context in which it was written -- is not without significant pointers. Indications (missed by Prokofieff and other Anthroposophical commentators because they have tenaciously held on only to the body and not to the spirit of the text) are present if we know how to read them. The following article seeks to come to grips with other aspects of the letter, hence its title: Valentin Tomberg's letter -- from another perspective
