Lectures Section

In 1922 the hundreds of workers from 17 nations engaged in the construction of Rudolf Steiner's first Goetheanum building arranged for Steiner to give them a daily lecture after their morning coffee break. Rudolf Steiner not only had the workers set the lecture themes but also welcomed their questions and comments. This second volume of nine of these talks retains the vital, coloquial, and spontaneous qualities of the first volume. The workers continued to show a special interest in therapeutics and health, but phenomena from all the kingdoms of nature as well as their cosmic origins were also touched upon. Thus, Steiner was able to shed new light on a wide specture of topics, including the effects of healing metals and substances on the human body, pregnancy, beaver lodges and wasp nests, crossed eyes, vegetarian and meat diets, and various specific diseases such as jaundice, rabies, hemophilia, and influenza.
