At the Gates of Spiritual Science

On-line since: 15th June, 2008

By Rudolf Steiner

Revised translation by E.H. Goddard
and Charles Davy
GA 95

These early lectures are a good introduction to the ideas and content of anthroposophy. Steiner covers a wide range of topics including the being of man, the three worlds, life after death, karma, the evolutionary epochs, and the path of inner development. This book is an excellent complement to the basic books.

Translated from a text consisting of notes which had been made by a member of the audience and were not revised by the lecturer. The volume in the Complete Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works containing this text (see Prefatory Note) is entitled:Vor dem Tore Theosophie (No. 95 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961).

This English edition is published by permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
