The story of Steppenwolf is the story of a long spiritual journey that can be related to mostly everybody. Everyone, either for their entire lives, or for just one specific point in their lives, searches for their true selves and tries to find out who they really are. This story of the Steppenwolf, Harry Haller, is all about finding out who he really is. Even though I believe the whole story, from the time Harry received the Treatise of the Steppenwolf, to the end, was a dream, I believe it was a spiritual journey for Harry, nonetheless. A person can go through a magnificent change of their self just by thinking or dreaming and making new decisions and coming to new conclusions in their minds. Something physical does not necessarily have to happen for someone to come out of a situation or a thought to have his or her inner selves changed.
