MP2808 Fundamentals of Anthroposophic Medicine

Fundamentals of Anthroposophic Medicine
Third Medical Course

4 lectures given to Doctors by Rudolf Steiner
on 26, 27 and 28 October 1922 in Stuttgart (GA 314).

Revised translation by Alice Wulsin and Gerald Karnow

“I think the stimulus given by anthroposophic research to medicine and to natural-scientific thinking ought to be worked out by those who are specialists in the various domains. Indeed, all that comes from anthroposophic investigation regarding medicine and, for instance, physiology, can be no more than a stimulus that must then be worked out empirically. Only on the basis of this empirical study can there arise valid and convincing judgments of the matters in question—and this is the kind of judgment that is needed in the domain of therapy.” — Rudolf Steiner (Oct. 26, 1922)

What is the difference between natural science and spiritual science? Dr. Steiner illumines this question and others in these fundamental lectures for understanding of the anthroposophic approach to human illnesses and their treatments.

Topics discussed include the structure of the brain; breathing, metabolic, anabolic, and catabolic processes; the human threefold organization and growth forces; the earth, water, air, and fire elements of the human organism.

This volume contains four lectures translated from the German text Physiologisch- Therapeutisches auf Grundlage der Geisteswissenschaft (GA 314).
