Sitemap of Defending Steiner

I was looking at my Defending Steiner site recently when I realize that there was no easy way to get an overview of the whole thing. I know what it looks like because I built it. But if you landed on the main page you would not easily see at a glance everything that is there. So I decide what it really needed was a Site Map. So that is the latest thing I have added. Defending Steiner Home Page Rudolf Steiner – Links to...

Rudolf Steiner and Heinrich von Treitschke

I was surprised to read once that Steiner was an admirer of Heinrich von Treitschke. I wondered what evidence, biographical or anecdotal, existed to support such a conclusion. The claim was made by Peter Staudenmaier so I was not at all surprised to find that, once again, Staudenmaier had misrepresented the situation. I wrote an entire article on the subject. It starts: Rudolf Steiner did not admire Treitschke. Far from it,...

Anthroposophically Extended Medicine

In another section of my site Defending Steiner I consider the questions of whether Rudolf Steiner’s anthroposophical approach to medicine, called “Anthroposophically Extended Medicine” rejects conventional scientific medicine. I wrote: Rudolf Steiner‘s approach to medicine is specifically called anthroposophically extended medicine because it extends conventional medicine. The very first requirement...

Some thoughts about how to define the word “...

An interesting diversion along the way in making the site were some thoughts about how to define the word “anthroposophist“. It might seem odd, but in such intellectual disputes as I have had with critics of anthroposophy (among others, Peter Staudenmaier) hair-splitting definitions has been an issue. Peter likes to use words loosely, even as he pretends to use them precisely. So he will call Rudolf Hess an...

Rudolf Steiner’s nationalism.

I’ve been working on Defending Steiner for about the last year. I haven’t been able to devote as much time to it as I would like, but progress was continual. In fact, I have a number of further articles in various stages of preparation. But at this point I judged it sufficiently far along to post online. I got several people to look at it first and their comments were helpful. Help was especially useful in my...

About my Defending Steiner site.

I’d like to introduce my new site Defending Steiner. It was my goal to discuss some of the things that I have been reading about Steiner on the Internet during the past several years. I’ve been reading Steiner since the early 1990’s, and read several biographies as well. Yet the character that I was meeting in some Internet profiles was nothing like the Steiner I knew. Was I severely mislead and missing...
