- Hello Daniel,
Thanks for writing. I feel your concern about the spirit of the time,
what anthroposophy has to offer to America and America to
anthroposophy in this regard. I believe you speak of "America" as a
continent (as you are from Canada), and this is important, too.
You mentioned that outside Steiner (and his references to Ahriman in
America), you don't (yet) know another anthroposophic author, and I
will assume that you are especially concerned to know one who
addresses the subject "America" and also the Time Spirit and
America's role in this work of the Time.
Others on this list can, I am sure, recommend various anthroposophic
works, and I will offer here a few suggestions:
Some of our own present and former list members (who are
anthroposophists) are busy with this subject, and so I recommend the
work of Joel Wendt (he recently mentioned his essay on the Hopis, and
also you can see his essay in the latest issue of the *Southern Cross
Review*, which is an e-magazine, so you can get it here on the
internet, and other of Joel's works on America are on the internet, I
believe). I also recommend Stephen Clarke's essays on Mesoamerican
Mysteries and anthroposophy in recent issues of that same *Southern
Many (I among them) have drawn strength from the work of Stewart
Easton, although I can no longer remember if he talks about America,
per se, but he is someone to read besides Steiner...
John Gardner writes about America (writes out of anthroposophy).
Like you, I write (certainly about America, as well as about Europe
and South Africa), and yet, as I said, my writing is what is called
literary fiction and poetry, although I have published some articles,
too (one of them about South Africa, where i lived--for example, and
this one is in the Anthroposophic Journal called *The Threefold
Review*, put out by Joel Kobran, et al, in New York state).
Well, maybe this is a start . . .
