Dear Friend,

During springtime, we experience fresh growth and
renewal around us in the outer physical world of nature,
and similarly we can appreciate and also experience
this blossoming internally if we are on a meditative
path. Then this gives us the impetus to be grateful for
the world around us and helps us resolve to help our
community and the Earth in even more positive ways.
This catalog is the first that combines our Steiner & Spirit catalog with
our traditional spring focus on healing ourselves and the Earth. Here you
will find many new and important books by distinguished authors that
encourage us to go into ourselves to discover the greater world, and into
the world to find our inner being.
We have provided pieces from a number of new books included in
the catalog, because it is spring and I personally love flowers, we have
a piece from Keith Critchlow’s stunning new book The Hidden Geometry of Flowers (page 52), plus selections from one of the new books by
prolific author Peter Selg, The Fundamental Social Law (see page 50).
In addition I know you will be please to see three new volumes in “The
Collected Works of Rudolf Steiner” (page 5), including Esoteric Lessons
1910–1912 (From the Esoteric School, vol. 2), from which two excerpts
appear (one from Christopher Bamford’s introduction, plus two meditations (on pages 56–59).
It is our hope that you, our friends, readers, and colleagues, will discover in this 2012 Steiner & Spirit catalog new sources of inspiration and
encouragement for the years ahead.
All best wishes,

Gene Gol logly
President & CEO, SteinerBooks

According to Steiner. “Fundamental law: the individual can work only ‘for others. But now the time has come to introduce social forms to counteract this evolutionary tendency.

The Mystery of Flowers: Their Chosen Symmetry and Their Intrinsic Geometry
From The Hidden Geometr y of
Flowers: Living Rhy thms, Form,
and Number by Keith Critchlow


e cannot be certain what gives us the appetite
for order, but we can be certain that it was there
from the beginning—whatever cosmogony we ascribe
to. We all appreciate an ordered life with not too many
surprises. Life is not possible without order. Life has to
be ordered so as to be spontaneous.
Symmetry must rank highly as one of the chief mysteries in this impulse for order. The symmetrical arrangement of elements within the same system tends toward
balance, which is symmetry. The human body has a
high degree of natural symmetry, which is expressed
largely in a twofold way—in common with most of the
animal kingdom. From this we get our right-handedness
and left-handedness, which maintains our natural bodily
balance in movement. We know our internal organs
differ, yet they are distributed to maintain balance and
an interior harmony. Flowers express a plethora of
beautiful symmetries, ranging from the twofold to the
manifold. The most predominant symmetry, particularly
in wildflowers, is fivefold. It is intrinsic to this pentagonal
symmetry that the “golden” proportion of 1:1.618 and
so on is present, as we have consistently noted. Fruit
blossoms are most often fivefold, a symmetry that is
powerfully visible when we cut an apple across its
meridian—passing through the five enclosures for the
“pips,” or seeds.
Symmetry is described in the Shorter Oxford English
Dictionary as: “1. Beauty resulting from right proportion
between the parts of a body or any whole, balance,
congruity, harmony. 2. Such structure as allows of an
object being divided by a point or line or plane or radiating lines or planes into two or more parts exactly similar
in size and shape and in position relative to the dividing
plane, etc. The repetition of exactly similar parts.” It is an
interesting fact that we all find beauty in symmetry—yet
this is not easily explained. Maybe common sense says
a balanced arrangement is least threatening to our visual
understanding? Whatever else, flowers most evidently
“speak” to us and affect us in their radial symmetries.
Firstly, we have to establish that “shape” inevitably
means some sort of geometry (or stereometry), classified so adequately by Euclid within the Platonic tradition. Geometry, in this heritage, was seen as the bridge
between our world and the higher world of causation.
Curved geometry was considered the “higher,” or of
the heavenly order, whereas straight-line geometry
was considered representative of this world. The curve
represented the transcendent, the straight the rational,
the calculable.
All petals, when “complete,” go through a straightline direction as well as an overall “curved” unfolding.

The single-petalled Arum flower
(Calla palustris, or Zantedeschia)
has a classical dignity and a curious
similarity to images of the Lord
Buddha and his light-body reality.
Another version of this flower is
called “Lords and Ladies.”

Two flowers demonstrate their
adoption of the use of twoness.

These examples adopt the
strategy of threeness. The petals
demonstrate difference in sameness.

Both are embraced by symmetry. Thus the universal
order is reenacted by every flower.
There is more than a single way to measure the geometry of the petals and flowers. Not only does each petal
have its own characteristic profile and curvature, but
the ensemble of all the petals is what we call the flower.
This collective geometry includes the total symmetry.
Whatever else we might conclude about symmetry, it
is valuable to acknowledge Plato’s first principle of the
triad of Sameness, Otherness, and Being. In terms of
flowers, this means that no two petals, let alone leaves,
are ever exactly the same in a single bloom, yet they are
usually clearly identifiable as an Oak, Ash, or Willow. In
short, all scrutiny of the natural world will entail Sameness and Otherness. These two qualities will always
seem antagonistic or contrary and, therefore, will never
be resolved until our acknowledgement of Being is recognized. Being reminds us of the extraordinary balance
of nature and balance of the universe itself. Through
cognizing Being, we learn to see Sameness and Otherness simultaneously. In short, we can experience a host
of Tulips, though common experience reveals that each
will be slightly different; each is unique, yet unquestionably a Tulip. Paradox alone can achieve unity.
Here we are taking a further Timaean ethos of working
within the boundaries of likelihood or seeking the most
likely underlying order. As we live in the world of necessary change, we cannot expect to have available to our
unreliable senses “absolutes” or “perfect” examples in
nature to study. The best we can hope for is to find the
“most likely” indications of the originating perfections, as
Timaeus insists at the beginning of his Cosmogony myth.
These we consider valid to call evidence of “archetypes,”
or the determining principles. The existent flowers echo
or reflect the archetype or originating paradigms. These
are enshrined physically in what we can call their genetic
memory bank and their reactions to their immediate environment—sunlight, for example.
When seeking a solution to the curves of any particular flower petal, we can choose only the most likely or
closest curve. This requires a huge effort to exclude any
preformed theories, shapes, characteristics, and so on.
So we rely, as objectively as we can, on the “nearest
solution” to each petal curve. This is the “gentle empiricism” of Goethe determined by an internal integrity. We
must not “fool” anyone, least of all ourselves, in seeking the underlying principles of geometries. To make
the utmost effort to find the nearest to the truth was
Timaeus’s advice. Solutions can be only “offerings,” not
proofs. Proofs are, after all, based only on a faith in an
accepted “rule,” or conventional principle.
To evoke the “gentle empiricism” of Goethe, we might
first observe the value of Goethe’s theory that petals are
transformations of leaves.
We have the one-petalled Aspidistra flower with
its central stalk. From the imaginative view point,
this can be seen as a remarkable likeness to the

lovingly-represented light body that surrounds ancient
Chinese and Japanese representations of the Lord
Buddha. From this singular white petal and other colored petals, the next occurrence is of dual-petalled
flowers. These are either with only two petals or pairs of
two petals making up the flower. Two-petalled flowers
are rare but can be found.
From here we move to the much more frequent threepetalled flowers, such as the Snow Drop, the Tulip, the Iris,
and the Lily. So many apparently sixfold flowers are really
a double three in their petal structure under closer scrutiny.
The threeness of a leaf or flower immediately indicates
a sixness in the handedness of the leaf or the arrays of
the petals. However, the distribution of threeness in the
Lily and Iris is beautifully evident.
Next there are some very beautiful fourfold flowers,
or flowers with balanced spreads of four petals, not
least the Clematis, the Balloon Flower, and the beautifully fragrant Wall Flower. The Clematis is a good
example, but this flower also unfolds beautifully in a
double four (or eight-petalled) form.
Next we come to the most frequently occurring
symmetry in natural wildflowers: the fivefold, or pentagonal, symmetry. The list is impressive and includes
the original Dog Rose (that Rose form from which most
other Roses seem to have been bred), the Buttercup,
the Herb Robert, the Periwinkle, Borage, and so on.
These all display fivefold symmetry so beautifully yet so
individually and at quite different scales.
What becomes apparent once we get to the fivefold
symmetry is that the “Golden Progression” is underlying
the sequence. This organic progression is known as
the Fibonacci sequence—after the Italian mathematician who it is believed was tutored in his early days by
Muslims in North Africa, where his father was
an Italian provincial governor. As we have previously noted, this sequence may be called
“golden” as it progressively comes closer to
the “golden ratio” of 1:1.6180339 . . . This ratio
is arithmetically inexpressible in whole numbers, like Pi (from the circle), yet can be accurately expressed geometrically—particularly
in the pentagon, with its diagonals making up
a pentacle. This remains a wonderful mystery
to the human mind.
Sixness is found in the Daffodil whose petals
fuse into its hexagonal shaft.
Next we come to the most rare of flower
symmetries, the “virgin” seven. This does
occur in such as the Primula flower, yet is
never completely balanced in its symmetry. It also
occurs occasionally in the Tulip—once again revealing
an imbalance, yet exquisitely beautiful.
Next we have eightfold symmetry, which is most
beautifully represented by the Cosmos flower in a range
and variety of colors. The sacred Lotus is in this symmetry and the Clematis is another fine example.

These flowers utilize fourness as
their petal strategy. What might
“fourness” be saying to the
insect world?

Nine, ten, eleven, twenty-one:
counting petals is the beginning of
understanding the arithmetical nature of flower petal choice. Names
are important, but here we wish to
focus on other aspects
of the flowers.

Ninefold symmetry does occur, although rarely: we
find it in certain Cactus plants and in others that are
exceptions rather than the rule. Again, nine is a notoriously mysterious symmetry. From the geometer’s viewpoint, this is because it cannot be constructed exactly
with a compass and straight edge. Good approximations can however be achieved.
Tenfold symmetry is also found occasionally, most
particularly in the Passion Flower. Yet even here it seems
to be composed of two fives. This same flower will also
occasionally exhibit an eightfold symmetry. Ten, we
recall, has the golden ratio inherent in its geometric form.
Elevenfold symmetry is very rare but does occasionally occur in flowers of the Daisy family (Compositae /
Twelvefold symmetry also occurs in the Daisy family
of flowers, but is not common.
Thirteenfold symmetry is more common in the multipetalled flowers like the Daisy family. But, as this is one
of the numbers of the golden sequence, it is not at all
Twenty-one, the next in the golden sequence, is
found again in the Daisy family and confirms the underlying golden order: 5, 8, 13, 21.
However, there are many exceptions in flowers with
multiple petals, as there are a bewildering number of
symmetries in the “heads,” or seed pods, of poppy flowers—even though the petals are usually fourfold and, on
occasions, sixfold.
One of the questions that arises when looking at
petal symmetries is: How much have humans “engineered” the numbers of petals? This raises the further
issue of how compliant the “natural,” or “original,” flower
is or was to being engineered into a more complex
form—let alone into quite different colors. In
the author’s view, Tulips are the most painful examples of human interference, with the
obviously unnatural feathering of the petal
fringes. However there is also a staggeringly
beautiful range of possibilities that have come
out of human breeding, known as cultivars.
One of the reasons why the author enjoys
very small flowers, such as the Herb Robert,
is that the visual effect is so powerful, while
the size is not much bigger than a human
thumbnail! Fortunately, the smaller more
modest wildflowers have not attracted so
much attention of flower “breeders” or “engineers.” However, there is currently a growing
revival of interest in the value of wildflowers
in their natural setting. Durlston Head in Dorset is one
such important site, receiving a growing number of
wildflower enthusiasts from southern England.
