6 lectures, Torquay and London, August 12-27, 1924 (CW 240)At the end of his life, Rudolf Steiner took up the task that was his special destiny: to bring knowledge of reincarnation and karma to the West. He gave over eighty lectures in 1924 in which he explicitly revealed the destinies of various individuals from one life to the next in order to show how the general laws of karma operate in individual cases. He also revealed many details of the karmic streams of the members of the Anthroposophical Society.
Subjects include Cosmic Christianity, the Michael impulse, the Arthur and Grail streams of wisdom, plus Gregory VII, Haeckel, Swedenborg, Loyola, Haroun al Raschid, Byron, Voltaire, and others.READ BOBBY MATHERNE S REVIEW OF THIS BOOK."

About the author (1975)

Austrian-born Rudolf Steiner was a noted Goethe (see Vol. 2) scholar and private student of the occult who became involved with Theosophy in Germany in 1902, when he met Annie Besant (1847--1933), a devoted follower of Madame Helena P. Blavatsky (1831--1891). In 1912 he broke with the Theosophists because of what he regarded as their oriental bias and established a system of his own, which he called Anthroposophy (anthro meaning "man"; sophia sophia meaning "wisdom"), a "spiritual science" he hoped would restore humanism to a materialistic world. In 1923 he set up headquarters for the Society of Anthroposophy in New York City. Steiner believed that human beings had evolved to the point where material existence had obscured spiritual capacities and that Christ had come to reverse that trend and to inaugurate an age of spiritual reintegration. He advocated that education, art, agriculture, and science be based on spiritual principles and infused with the psychic powers he believed were latent in everyone. The world center of the Anhthroposophical Society today is in Dornach, Switzerland, in a building designed by Steiner. The nonproselytizing society is noted for its schools.
