The Threefold Order of the Body Social – Study Series II
Two Addresses given by Dr. Steiner at Study Evenings in the Year 1920
By Rudolf Steiner
Translation by Ethel Bowen-Wedgwood
Stuttgart, GA 337 and GA 335
In the social ferment of postwar Europe in 1919, Steiner presented his ideas about reforming the basis of society in three fundamental, autonomous spheres: economic, political/rights, and cultural. For a short time he worked to bring his ideas into practical application but it soon became impossible to bring about a “threefold social order” and he withdrew from the outer work in this area. His ideas have been worked with over the decades since that time and have proved to be just as valid today as they were then.
In this second volume are presented two addresses given by Dr. Steiner at study evenings in the year 1920. The first lecture, given on September 15th, is from GA 335, and the second lecture is from GA 337.
This volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
