The Scientific Nature of Anthroposophy and the developmental impulse of the Christmas Conference (postponed from Feb. 11th-13th 2022)

Open Conference of the Anthroposophical Society in Switzerland

The Karma Lectures of Rudolf Steiner
The blackboard drawing is from the 7th lecture, Dornach, 20th December 1922. Worker’s lectures at the Goetheanum from «Health and Illness. Foundations of a Spiritual Scientific Theory of the Senses», vol. 3, CW 348

The scientific nature of Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophy as well as the scientific approach to it, is a problem not only for the science of our time but also for us. The fact that science itself, in connection with a highly developed technology, has taken a completely different path than was even conceivable a hundred years ago, does not make this challenge any easier.
Regarding the first aspect, the scientific nature of Anthroposophy, people such as Peter Heusser have successfully endeavoured to show to the present consciousness how concrete and consistent it is, in a comprehensible way.
With regard to the second aspect, the scientific approach to Anthroposophy, more and more Anthroposophists are interested in the continuation and further development of the anthroposophical movement, and are making efforts in this direction.
With this conference we would like to attempt to bring both motives to view and with the centenary of Rudolf Steiner’s scientific course in 1922, to stimulate a reflection on the significance of the scientific nature of Anthroposophy and its central position in stimulating the influence of Anthroposophy in civilisation. How evident the scientific nature of Anthropos[1]ophy can prove to be in practice is presented in short contributions.
This conference on the scientific nature of Anthroposophy complements the series of conferences in preparation for the 100th Anniversary of the Christmas Conference 1923/24. The Impulse of the Christmas Conference was essential for Rudolf Steiner in 1922.
We cordially invite all members and friends to this conference.
