This small book contains 16 short sections, each section treating one or another aspect of Spiritual Science. The last section discusses the relation between this book and two others which deal with similar topics, namely Theosophy and Occult Science — an Outline.
In addition, clear and succinct summary chapters are interspersed in between the longer and more detailed sections, making this a very easily accessible book.
It is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
