They're all standard stuff that anyone could find for themselves if they read Steiner's lectures from the WW1 (and other) time. That the prof never mentions them, and instead presents Steiner as a nationalist, might be considered a scandalous dereliction of the duty to truth that one expects from a scholar, a waste of taxpayer dollars, and, to use his own words, an indication of his "hostility to the very notion of history and of making sense of the

As for him not being a 'bigger advocate for anthroposophy', in your words - I should have thought that that was up to him. But, in any event, from what I've seen, he seems to have been doing just fine with 'showmanship', as you call it. As for him 'passing his mantle' - not to me gov; I'm just a person who values Steiner's thought and work and I do what I can to support it when it's unjustly attacked; but I don't' represent anyone other than myself.
