True and False Paths of Spiritual Research

11 lectures in Torquay, England, August 11–22, 1924 (CW 243) “Bearing in mind we are dealing here with spiritual research and not just spiritual experiences in general, a ‘true’ path in this sense is one that leads to genuine and reliable results that advance our knowledge of the human being and the world.

10 lectures in Dornach, Switzerland, January 4–13 and April 19–22, 1924 (CW 233a) “Steiner has been able to clarify the historical reality behind the Rosicrucian story, with all its aura of glamor and fantasy.

Concerning the Astral World and Devachan

Notes from 19 lectures and 4 private lessons, Berlin, 1903–1904 (CW 88) In Berlin, just past the turn of the twentieth century, Rudolf Steiner, then a relatively unknown writer, educator, and editor, first began his spiritual teaching activity under the auspices of the Theosophical Society.

Artistic Sensitivity as a Spiritual Approach to Knowing Life and the World

13 lectures, Dornach, Switzerland, January 9 – May 2, 1915 (CW 161) Today’s orthodox notions of science—which is to say, of knowing—are exceedingly narrow; they posit, implicitly or otherwise, that the only knowledge possible, if any, is that of the physical world. But the skeleton key to unlocking the door, behind which lies the root of the problems and difficulties of our age, and thus their ...

Life of the Human Soul

9 lectures, Dornach, April 29 – June 17, 1922 (CW 212) How are we connected to the world around us? This question, says Rudolf Steiner, is one that lives subliminally, drawing us into the depths of the psyche. There, our candle of consciousness tends to flicker and go out. But spiritual training can relight it so that we learn to perceive realms of our being beyond the restricted self. As Rudolf ...

Toward a New Theory of Architecture

An introductory lecture with slides, Bern, Switzerland, June 29, 1921 (CW 290) Rudolf Steiner gave thousands of lectures in his lifetime, usually without notes, and, with very few exceptions, with nothing more than chalk and a blackboard if he chose to accompany his speech with some kind of visual illustration. A notable exception is the presentation that constitutes the main part of this book. ...
