A series of lectures commencing with the opening of the “French
course” at the Goetheanum Dornach, September 1922, published by
Frau Dr. Steiner in one volume. It focuses on exercises to attain higher
spiritual development. Steiner gives a description of philosophy based
on Imagination, cosmology based on Inspiration, and religion based on
Intuition. This is followed by a rich account of the stages of sleep
and the period between death and rebirth, especially the role of Christ
after death as revealed to spiritual cognition.
