Given during a conference on spiritual values in education and attended by many prominent people of the time, Steiner's Oxford lectures gave him a rare opportunity to present the principles of Waldorf education at the highest cultural level.

His lectures, well received, were reviewed in The Manchester Guardian: “Dr. Steiner's lectures brought to us in a very vivid way an ideal of humanity in education. He spoke to us about teachers who, freely and unitedly, unrestricted by external prescription, develop their educational methods exclusively out of a thorough knowledge of human nature. He spoke to us about a kind of knowledge needed by the teacher, a knowledge of the being of man and the world, which is at the same time scientific and also penetrates into the most intimate inner life, which is intuitive and artistic.”

These 9 lectures were given at Manchester College: Oxford, England, August 16–25, 1922. Also known as: The Fundamental Spirit-Soul Power of Education. In German: Die Geistige-Seelische Grundkraefte der Erziehungskunst Spirituelle Werte in Erziehung und sozialem Leben.

This lecture series is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland. From Bn 305.1, GA 305, CW 305.
