Rudolf Steiner

Nine Lectures
(Given between 23rd October, 1911 and
20th June 1912, in Berlin.)
Bn 133, GA 133

These nine lectures, given by Rudolf Steiner at Berlin in late 1911 and early 1912, concentrate on laws of human destiny and reincarnation in the development of the free, self-conscious, independent human personality.

The lectures are from the lecture series entitled, The Earthly and The Cosmic Man, published in German as, Der Irdische und der Kosmische Mensch. This is the authorized translation from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer.

This lecture series is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland. From Bn 133, GA 133.
