Life is full of enigmas. Why do we suffer? What is evil? What happens to us after death? What is our origin?

 

Without answers to questions such as these, our life seems to lack real meaning and purpose. The materialistic science of our time has no real answers to offer, but the science of spirit can and does answer these an many other pressing mysteries of life.

 

Rudolf Steiner focuses the light of higher states of consciousness on these concerns of the human soul. He demonstrates in these lectures that Spiritual Science is not just a theory but a necessity for modern life, addressing many of life's questions—such as our relationship to the spiritual world, evolution, and destiny; the mystery of birth and death; the origin of evil and illness; and the essential problems of modern education. 

 

These important lectures are part of Steiner's remarkable annual public lecture series at the Architect's House in Berlin, from 1904 to 1918.
