Ita Wegman Institute for basic research into anthroposophy in Arlesheim
work and intentions

Looking back after ten years   2002-2012

by Peter Selg

This brochure documents the development of the Institute and sheds light on its field of research: the spiritual content and goals of Rudolf Steiner’s life work and of the General Anthroposophical Society founded by him. It describes the work of the Institute between 2002 and 2012, the main focus of the Institute’s research and teaching tasks, the structure of the Archives, the international association of friends of the Institute, and the 89 publications, approximately half of which are translated into foreign languages.
