The Author Herbert Witzenmann and His Work
Herbert Witzenmann (February 16, 1905 - September 24, 1988) had in his youth a decisive meeting with Rudolf Steiner, which determined the course of the rest of his life. In 1963 he became a member of the Executive-Council of the General Anthroposophical Society in Dornach, and two years later head of the Section for Social Science at the Goetheanum, Free School of Spiritual Science, until around 1970 this latter position was in effect taken away from him by a majority decision of the Council and in 1979 occupied by the late Manfred Schmidt-Brabant, who in 1984 also became president of this Society.
These three lectures are translated from Der gerechte Preis – Eine Grundfrage des sozialen Lebens (Gideon Spicker Verlag, Dornach 1993). It is being made available as private study material for members and friends of the Anthroposophical Society and the Herbert Witzenmann Foundation by the Willehalm Institute for Anthroposophy as Grail Research, Royal Art and Social Organics in Amsterdam.
