Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The main goal is, "Spreading the Words!" We aim to bring the knowledge of those gifted philosophers and individuals in the past to present-day peoples: Sharing the Words.

1. Finding documents -- lectures, essays, articles, books -- that were written or given by individuals like Goethe, Steiner, and other philosophers and scientists;

2. Digitizing them in their native language and in translation to other languages;

3 Presenting them on the Internet in a searchable, comparable format for researchers, worldwide.

The founder of this organization has over 55 years of experience in the Computer/Information Technology sector, and over 60 years researching philosophical works. We have an extensive network of document servers stationed around the world. All this geared to provide an unique experience for the researcher or even the casual reader.

We have over 2 million document pages on our sites! Over the last year we have added 249 individual lectures, articles, and books by Rudolf Steiner alone. as of the date of this writing in April of 2018, we have 3415 of the over 6000 lectures given by Rudolf Steiner. This is significant for those researching his words.

What's next is to continue adding new material and new research tools, providing better access for our researchers, old and new, and keeping the cost of access to "no charge."
