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.'
