16 lectures, Dornach, May 30, 1922 to Sept 22, 1923. Translated by Anna Meuss. Sept. 26, 2013. 328 pages.
The remarkable discussions in this volume took place between Rudolf Steiner and workers at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. The audience chose the various subjects at Steiner’s instigation. As he listened to their questions, Steiner usually responded with immediate answers. The astonishing nature of these responses—their insight, knowledge and spiritual depth—is testimony to his outstanding ability as a spiritual initiate and profound thinker. Accessible, entertaining, and stimulating, the records of these sessions will be a delight to anyone with an open mind.
