Chance, necessity, and providence are related to love, loyalty and grace. Into this central theme Steiner introduces a fascinating description of the nature spirits. He also relates his penetrating insights into the question of the death of children and the significant role this plays in earthly culture and the spiritual worlds.
These lectures, given by Rudolf Steiner in the early Fall of 1915, are published in German as, Zufall, Notwendikeit und Vorsehung. Imaginative Erkenntnis und Vorgaenge nach dem Tode.
