Correspondences Between Microcosm and Macrocosm. Man - a Hieroglyph of the Cosmos

The human being in his connection with the cosmos, Volume I

Entsprechungen zwischen Mikrokosmos und Makrokosmos. Der Mensch – eine Hieroglyphe des Weltenalls

Der Mensch in seinem Zusammenhang mit dem Kosmos, Band I

Sixteen Lectures, Dornach 9 April to 16 May 1920

Throughout this volume - as in fact through all of Rudolf Steiner's astronomical lectures - runs the fundamental idea that the real events in the cosmos cannot be viewed in such a way that only what is discovered with telescope and graduated circle is decisive, but rather that which finds its counterpart in the human being.
