How wrong can you be
- Eric the German opines on WC:
"See Ilas Koerner-Wellerhaus "Sozialer Heilsweg Anthroposophy" (initially a
dissertation and then published in 1993)where he pointed out Steiner's objection
to the independence of the `inferior' Slavic people ("eine religoese Mission des
Deutschtums" p.116). Plus more recently Peter's work where he is able to draw a
relationship between Steiner's early ultra-Nationalist period with what among
others became the Anthroposphical musings about "Mitteleuropa" (also reflected
in the culture epochs of the Waldorf Schools)."
Steiner had an 'ultra-Nationalist' period! Eric also has a juicy bit from the 'academic in the used Stasi uniform' (thanks for that immortal formulation Jean-Marc!):
"Helmut Zander in "Anthroposophy in Deutschland" makes a good case for the fact
that Steiner's Christology followed the contours of his rivalries with Annie
Besant, especially since she became President in 1907 - a position Steiner
himself was hoping for (4)."
Now where have we seen this 'argument' before? "Anthroposophy in Deutschland" is looking very like the gutter journalism of the biography.
