This lecture, Das Geheimnis des Todes, was given in Zürich, January 31, 1915, and is included in Volume 159 of the Bibliographic Survey, 1961. It has been translated from notes unrevised by the lecturer, by an unknown translator with some emendations.

Here, the four Platonic Virtues (described in The Republic) are developed in the direction of that comprehensive picture of man’s threefold being — the head-system, the rhythmic system, and the metabolic and limb system — of which Steiner gave the first full description in 1917, and which is summed up in the Foundation Stone Meditation in 1923.

The lecture has been authorized for the Western hemisphere by, and published here by kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
