This short book consists of three sections. Each section was originally a lecture (6, 7, and 8 June 1911), but was subsequently reworked by Steiner and cast into the form of an essay. These lectures, and those in The Mission of the Folk-Souls, are the only lectures reworked by Steiner for the public. It has been published in English under 4 separate titles, all translated from the same German text, Die Geistige Führung des Menschen und der Menschheit, Geistes wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse ueber die Menschheits-Entwickelung.

Some of the topics treated in this book are:
    the nature of the brain,
    the development of speech,
    angelic beings,
    ancient language,
    Zarathustra, Buddha, and Christ.

Die geistige Führung des Menschen und der Menschheit Geisteswissenschaftliche Ergebnisse über die Menschheits-Entwickelung

Book Cover Image In diesem schmalen, aber inhaltlich äußerst gewichtigen Bändchen stellt Steiner u.a. zum ersten Mal öffentlich die Erkenntnis von den zwei Jesusknaben dar und schildert den Weg vom Jesus von Nazareth zum Christus. Zugleich werden in diesem Werk die Götter und Helden der Mythologie, die Engel und luziferischen Wesenheiten in ihrer Bedeutung für die Entwicklung der Menschheit dargestellt. So erscheint auch die Theodizee-Frage nach dem Sinn des Bösen in einem anderen Licht.



. Spiritual Guidance of Mankind
Book Cover Image A First Edition English translation of this book, we present the Authorized English Translation by Harry Collison, published by the Anthroposophical Society of Great Britain in 1921. This translation was also published by the Anthroposophic Press in 1925.


. Spiritual Guidance of Man and Humanity (1970)
Book Cover Image Steiner describes the spiritual potentialities the human being brings with him at birth and shows how in successive world epochs these potentialities have brought to earth, through reincarnation, new impulses and forces out of the cosmic spiritual world. Translated and edited by Henry B. Monges, this book has an Appendix and the Genealogy of Jesus from both Matthew and Luke. (Essentially the same book as the 1976 printing.)


. Spiritual Guidance of Man (1976)
Book Cover Image Steiner describes the spiritual potentialities the human being brings with him at birth and shows how in successive world epochs these potentialities have brought to earth, through reincarnation, new impulses and forces out of the cosmic spiritual world. Translated and edited by Henry B. Monges, this book has an Appendix and the Genealogy of Jesus from both Matthew and Luke. (Essentially the same book as the 1970 printing.)


. Spiritual Guidance of the Individual and Humanity (1992)
Book Cover Image A second, wiser self guides us through life. Without it we would not go far, for it is what makes us human. In the first years of life — before memory and ego — it guides us to stand upright and to learn to speak and think. Then we exchange this wisdom, which is still connected to the spiritual hierarchies, for our ego-consciousness. Yet it remains ever-present and through meditation we can consciously connect to it. What or who is this wisdom? It is the same higher self of humanity that lived in Jesus during the years between the Baptism and the Crucifixion. This mind-bending book constitutes an important contribution to our understanding of the working of the Christ impulse in humanity. Translated by Samuel Desch, this book has an extended Appendix and Notes.
