The Being of Man and His Future Evolution (Lectures Section)

Throughout our life, we have to struggle with questions that cannot be answered on the basis of our experience or with our ordinary thinking. Spiritual science can help us penetrate to a realm where new possibilities open up to address these questions. These lectures offer fascinating insights into the spiritual nature of everyday matters such as forgetting, laughing and weeping, different types of illnesses, and rhythms in the bodies of the human being. Steiner shows how we can become, through our own efforts, “co-creators” in evolution.

The Social Question and Theosophy

By Rudolf Steiner
Translation by John Root, Sr.
Unknown GA

On-line since: 8th November, 2012

There are two translations of this work: “Anthroposophy and the Social Question” (Mercury Press, Spring Valley, N.Y.), and “Spiritual Science and the Social Question” in Reincarnation and Immortality (Rudolf Steiner Publications, Blauvelt, N.Y.). The Fundamental Social Law reads: “In a community of human beings working together, the well-being of the community will be the greater, the less the individual claims for himself the proceeds of the work he has himself done, i.e., the more of these proceeds he makes over to his fellow workers, and the more his own requirements are satisfied, not out of his own work done, but out of work done by the others” (Mercury Press translation).

This public lecture, given on October 26, 1905, was translated from German by John Root, Sr. The lecture stems from when Rudolf Steiner was leader of the German Section of the Theosophical Society. It is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland. The link for this important lecture series is:
