Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 44

In reaching for new sense attractions,
Soul-clarity would fill,
Mindful of spirit-birth attained,
The world's bewildering, sprouting growth
With the creative will of my own thinking.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 18

Can I expand my soul
That it unites itself
With cosmic Word received as seed?
I sense that I must find the strength
To fashion worthily my soul
As fitting raiment for the spirit.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Two Essays on Haeckel
GA 30

Introduction

This translation of two of Dr. Steiner's works on Haeckel was originally published by the Theosophical Society in one volume with an essay on the Working of Karma. By the courtesy of the Theosophical Society and with the kind consent of the translator, Dr. Bertram Keightley, LL.D., M.A., the parts referring to Haeckel are now reprinted in this volume.

In the original German the two parts were published separately:

  1. Haeckel und seine Gegner (Haeckel and his opponents): a brochure, 1900, page 1.
  2. Haeckel, die Welträtsel und die Theosophie (Haeckel, “the Riddle of the Universe” and Theosophy): a lecture given at Berlin, 5th October, 1905.
