Turning Points in Spiritual History
GA 60


(part 2)

I will now add the titles of some further subjects upon which Rudolf Steiner has lectured. These taken together, build up a grand structure of consistent effort, showing moderation of conscious perception in world-philosophy founded upon a solid basis of experience and spirituality, pointing a clear way to a broader and a fuller future; but all unheeded by a short-sighted present-day humanity. The wide range of subjects covered by the list may possibly evoke amazement, and even be somewhat disconcerting; it nevertheless represents only a small part of the far-reaching comprehensive lecture-activities of Rudolf Steiner  -- a small part, indeed, in relation to the overflowing abundance of his knowledge -- presented always with the highest artistic elegance before many exclusive and understanding audiences, both in the form of single lectures and lecture cycles of never-failing power and nobility of conception.
