The Evolution of the Earth and Man and The Influence of the Stars

On-line since: 15th December, 2005

By Rudolf Steiner

GA 354

The Evolution of the Earth and Man and The Influence of the Stars This is another cycle of lively, impromptu question and answer periods Steiner had with the workers of the second Goetheanum. He begins with an imaginative description of the creation of the world and of human beings. He goes on to consider a wide range of questions about Chinese culture, nutrition, the sense of smell, planetary influences on animals, plants and stones, weather and its causes, and more. These talks are among the last he was able to give before his illness put a stop to his lecturing and travel.

The fourteen lectures presented here were given between June and Sept. of 1924 in Dornach, Switzerland. In the Collected Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works in German, the volume containing the German texts is entitled, Die Schöpfung der Welt und des Menschen, Erdenleben und Sternenwirken (Vol. 354 in the Bibliographic Survey). They were translated into English by Gladys Hahn. Cover design by Van James (Based on a pastel sketch by Rudolf Steiner entitled ‘Es werde die Weite und das Leben.’)

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