The following is among the many lecture-courses by Rudolf Steiner, of which the shorthand reports (unrevised by the lecturer) have been published during or after his life-time. It was given to an audience familiar with the general background and terminology of his anthroposophical teaching. In his autobiography, The Course of My Life, Rudolf Steiner emphasizes the distinction between his written works and these reports of lectures which were given as oral communications and were not intended for print. For an intelligent appreciation of the lectures, it should be borne in mind that certain premises were taken for granted when the words were spoken. “These premises,” he writes, “include, at the very least, the anthroposophical knowledge of Man and of the Cosmos in its spiritual essence; also what may be called ‘anthroposophical History,’ told as an outcome of research into the spiritual world.”

At the end of this volume will be found a list of publications that can be helpful to readers in this regard.
