Projective Geometry, The World of Life and The World of Soul
1 May @ 7:00 pm - 12 June @ 9:00 pm| $445
A part-time online course facilitated by the Melbourne Rudolf Steiner Seminar
Projective geometry began as an exact science yet its own development has turned even science inside out. Rudolf Steiner saw in this meeting of opposites a new beginning – and called it the polarity of space versus counterspace. It is the interplay of etheric and physical and the forms of the plant-world tell of this mystery.
This polar (threefold) relation lives also in the soul’s thinking, feeling and willing. What does Rudolf Steiner mean by ‘pure thinking’ ? Well, projective geometry leads us to experiences of that. The new soul condition indicated in Rudolf Steiner’s Philosophy of Freedom is that of the thinking will – yet this is no mere admixture of the two.
There is no need to read Philosophy of Freedom before the course, but participants will need to read at least the short 8th and final chapter – entitled “Practical Conclusion – of the Earlier Work Truth and Science” (GA 3). Super-condensed and real work for the mind, this elicits an experience, alive in thought, of what human freedom means.
Duration: Term 2. Mondays 1 May to 12 June.
Monday evenings from 7.00 – 9.00pm (Melbourne time)
Cost: $445 per term
