The Goetheanum Library has approximately 110,000 books. Hours: Tuesdays 14:00 - 19:00; Fridays 14:00 - 18:00
The Goetheanum offers a full-year study program, "Foundations of Anthroposophy," in English! (The full-time study overseen by the General Anthroposophic Section, is also offered in Spanish/Portuguese and German.) Students from around the world, of various backgrounds and ages, come for an academic year of Anthroposophic studies, including artistic classes.
There are 11 sections at the Goetheanum that offer conferences throughout the year, often translated or held in multiple languages. See the individual websites for current programs.
The following schools and sections offer occupational Anthroposophical courses, diploma programs and research options in Dornach: eurythmy (performing arts section), painting (visual art section), education, biodynamic agriculture, medicine, mathmatics/astronomy and natural science. The youth section located on the Goetheanum hill, houses a multitude of activities and international conferences in English, German and Spanish. The literary arts and humanities section and the social science section can be contacted for questions about involvement, study or research.
The 11 Sections for the School of Spiritual Science are involved in world issues and research projects.
Here is insight into their current projects: General Anthropsophy ·Natural Science · Agriculture · Medicine · Theraputic Education and Social Therapy · Education · Mathematics-Astronomy · Arts and Humanities · Spoken and Musical/Performing Arts · Visual Arts · Social Science · Youth Section

The research project is based on the symmetrical parameterization of the inverted movement discovered by Paul Schatz. The six-part articulated ring of the invertible cube is moved in a way that ensures that the mass forces involved balance each other. Paul Schatz discovered the inversion of the cube 85 years ago and went on to develop machines such as the Turbula and the Oloid Agitator, both based on inversion motion. He mostly used parts rather than the entire ring of six oloids. Paul Schatz died in 1979.
Oloid ring with differential suspension
In the autumn of 2013 Johann Wolfesberger and Oliver ConÊradt presented a first prototype of the hexagon mechanism and, at the 2014 AGM, they showed an improved version of that prototype with two oloids. In late October 2014 the engineering firm Kirchberger MaschiÊnenbau KG in Kirchberg-Thening (AT) finished building the second prototype. The second prototype features an articulated ring of six oloids. The differential suspension, developed by Johann Wolfesberger, makes sure that the six oloids hold each other in balance through their inverted movements. This means that, 85 years after the discovery of inversion, it has become possible for the first time to build
