Rare hardcover 1947 edition.

Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and its Attainment constitutes a fundamental guide to the anthroposophical path of cognition or knowledge. In human consciousness, faculties are sleeping that, if awakened, lead to life-giving wisdom. With great clarity and warmth Rudolf Steiner details the exercises and moral qualities to be cultivated on the path to a conscious experience of supersensible realities.

This book, perhaps the most controversial of Steiner's extensive literary legacy, suggests the possibility of a person in the 20th century developing sufficient skills of concentration, empathy, etc. to be able to obtain first-hand knowledge of spiritual realities consciously.

In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works in German, the volume containing the German text is entitled Wie Erlangt Man Erkenntnisse der Hoeheren Welten?, (Vol. 10 in the Bibliographic Survey). This translation into English was made by George Metaxa, with revisions by Henry B. Monges.
