Lectures Section

In these lectures, Rudolf Steiner describes the evolutionary task facing contemporary humanity as it prepares to enter the sixth epoch. In the past, human souls felt a strong connection with the group soul to which they belonged. Today, all 'group soul' characteristics - such as race and nation - must be stripped off. Of the last lecture, Rudi Lissau writes: 'No anthroposophist should approach racial problems without first pondering this lecture and its implications.'

In these lectures, Rudolf Steiner describes the evolutionary task facing contemporary humanity as it prepares to enter the sixth epoch. In the past, human souls felt a strong connection with the group soul to which they belonged. Today, all “group soul” characteristics — such as race and nation — must be stripped off.

Of the last lecture, Rudi Lissau writes: “No anthroposophist should approach racial problems without first pondering this lecture and its implications.”
