This book introduces a new way for thinking about, creating, and viewing art. Rudolf Steiner saw his task as the renewal of the lost unity of science, the arts, and religion; thus, he created a new, cognitive scientific and religious art in anthroposophy. The implications of his act --recognized by such diverse artists as Wassily Kandinsky and Joseph Beuys --are only now coming fully to light. In his thorough introduction of more than a hundred pages, Michael Howard takes readers through these thought-provoking chapters: * Is Art Dead? * To Muse or Amuse * Artistic Activity As Spiritual Activity * The Representative of Humanity * Beauty, Creativity, and Metamorphosis * New Directions in Art Lectures include: * The Aesthetics of Goethe's Worldview * The Spiritual Being of Art * Buildings Will Speak * The Sense Organs and Aesthetic Experience * The Two Sources of Art * The Building at Dornach * The Supersensible Origin of the Arts * Truth, Beauty, and Goodness * Christ, Ahriman, and Lucifer * Plus a bibliography and index
