Publisher's Synopsis
The Logos-Structure of the World, by Georg Kuhlewind, was written "to show that the world, including human beings and their consciousness, is not originally a world of things but a world of words; that fundamentally the world has the structure of a text; and that it is therefore possible to read it like a text."

In order to carry out this aim, three different approaches or disciplines must be continuously kept in mind: epistemology, psychology, and linguistics. What unites these is the phenomenology or "empiricism of consciousness" employed by the author who always speaks out of, and toward, experience.

Reviews

"A most important work, sounding the depth of the I AM to reveal the love that unifies self and cosmos."     ~David Appelbaum, Professor of Philosophy at SUNY

"Drawing on a vast store of scientific, philosophical, and linguistic knowledge, and his own carefully charted experience, Georg Kühlewind teaches the Logos in terms at once individual and universally human."     ~Robert McDermott, Ph.D., Professor of philosophy and religion, California Institute of Integral Studies

Excerpt

"The first view, or picture, of reality is given to us, and it is already a picture at that moment, not a reality, as is often supposed. Reality is the last secret and can be attained only through conscious questioning. The first picture is given through the soul's superconscious and subconscious structure. It is filtered, dulled, and immobilized because of the necessary dependence of the cognizing principle in human beings on the physical organism. As a result, only a part of the totality of the world reaches conscious experience. Since our questions and answers also become a part of reality, reality is not finished or fixed; it blossoms within, and through, the human being."

Biography

Georg Kühlewind (1924–2006) was a Hungarian philosopher, writer, lecturer, and meditation teacher who worked from the tradition of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science. Setting aside his early interest in music and psychology, he pursued a successful professional career as a physical chemist. Meanwhile, he continued to deepen his spiritual practice and insights. A prolific author (most of whose works are still only in German), Georg Kühlewind spent much time traveling the world, lecturing and leading workshops and seminars in meditation, psychology, epistemology, child development, anthroposophy, and esoteric Christianity.
