The Effects of Esoteric Development - Rudolf Steiner Anthroposophy book The Effects Of Esoteric Development
10 lectures by Rudolf Steiner

The Effects of Esoteric Development: On February 3, 1913, the first General Meeting of the newly formed Anthroposophical Society was convened in Berlin. Six weeks later, in Holland, Rudolf Steiner spoke for the first time to an anthroposophical audience in a detailed, intimate way of the esoteric schooling of the individual human being in earthly life. In the lecture series, The Effects of Esoteric Development, Steiner discusses the subtle effects of spiritual development at every level of the human being.

Beginning with straightforward questions relating to the body’s experience of foodstuffs—meat, coffee, alcohol, and so forth—he unfolds the universe of anthroposophical spiritual striving until it includes direct perception of Paradise and the Holy Grail, as well as the role of the human being as evolving between the forces of Lucifer and Ahriman. Also included as a prologue is Steiner’s crucial lecture on “The Being of Anthroposophy,” which has never before appeared in English. This edition also includes Steiner’s “introductory words,” previously available only in German typescript.
