Aristotle was a disciple of Plato, and Rudolf Steiner, the reincarnation of Aristotle, grew up in Austro-Hungary near his mentor and elder, Karl Julius Schroer, the reborn Plato. These two had returned together to further the advancement of civilization. Schroer did not live up to his task, but Steiner was able to take it up, and develop anthroposophy. As he told his collaborator, Walter Johannes Stein, his task was clear: to further the teachings of karma and reincarnation in a Christianized fashion - a purpose made known in various other documents, particularly Karmic Relationships, Volume 4. THE CONVERGENCE OF ARISTOTELIAN AND PLATONIC STREAMS IN THE PRESENT Luigi Morelli has considered Steiner's life - biographically, historically and karmically - as a mission to carry on two life tasks, his own and Schroer's. The differentiation of the two tasks allows us to recognize the role of the Aristotelian and Platonic streams in the present. A picture emerges of the pivotal role that an Aristotelian - Platonic polarity must play in the renewal of modern civilization, and how it could be carried out in what Steiner called the "culmination" of their joint contributions.
