The Creation of the World and of Man. Life on Earth and the Influence of the Stars

Die Schöpfung der Welt und des Menschen. Erdenleben und Sternenwirken

Volume VIII - Fourteen Lectures, Dornach 30 June to 24 September 1924.

The remarkable discussions in this volume took place between Rudolf Steiner and workers at the first Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. At Rudolf Steiner's instigation, the varied subjects were chosen by his audience. He took their questions and usually gave immediate answers. The astonishing nature of these responses -- their insight, knowledge, and spiritual depth -- is testimony to Steiner's outstanding ability as a spiritual initiate and profound thinker. Accessible, entertaining and stimulating, the records of these sessions will be a delight to anyone with an open mind.
