In these lectures, Rudolf Steiner describes the evolutionary task facing contemporary humanity as it prepares to enter the sixth epoch. In the past, human souls felt a strong connection with the group soul to which they belonged. Today, all “group soul” characteristics — such as race and nation — must be stripped off.
Of the last lecture, Rudi Lissau writes: “No anthroposophist should approach racial problems without first pondering this lecture and its implications.”
