«All publications of the Society shall be public, in the same sense as are those of other public societies*. The publications of the School of Spiritual Science will form no exception as regards this public character; however, the leadership of the School reserves the right to deny in advance the validity of any judgment on these publications which is not based on the same training from which they have been derived. Consequently they will regard as justified no judgement which is not based on an appropriate preliminary training, as is also the common practice in the recognised scientific world.»

* The conditions under which one acquires training have also been made public, and their publication will be continued.
