“Steiner's gift to the worldwas a moral and meditativeway to objective vision, a wayappropriate to thepsychological andphysiological constitution of Western man. If accepted in the spirit of humility, altruism and truthfulness in which it was given, it could bridge theexisting cleft between a man's religious conviction and his intellect and will.It could add comprehension to our existing knowledge and thus revive thevision without which our generation will hardly find the solution to itsproblems.”Franz Winkler, M.D.,

“That the academic world has managed to dismiss Steiner's works asinconsequential and irrelevant, is one of the intellectual wonders of thetwentieth century. Anyone who is willing to study those vast works with anopen mind (let us say, a hundred of his titles) will find himself faced with oneof the greatest thinkers of all time, whose grasp of the modern sciences isequaled only by his profound learning in the ancient ones.”Russell W. Davenport,
