Is it possible to rethink physics from its foundations and experience it as a science of life? Dr. von Zabern approaches this question with self-observant thinking as proposed by Rudolf Steiner. His mode of presentation lets us begin to experience that when thought is meditatively enhanced, it reveals its own life. With this as a stepping stone we are then invited, through carefully crafted thought experiences, to join the search for new concepts of time, space and movement, and to explore the field where human activity brings forth — and overcomes — physical force. As unusual as the quest may seem to be, as old are the sources of such a future physics; Dr. von Zabern highlights this with a series of biographical notes of pioneers of the spirit from antiquity to the present century.
