Macrocosm and Microcosm
The human being's life alternates between the great outer macrocosm and the hidden inner microcosm. Steiner discusses the different paths of development that lead to crossing these two thresholds.
Translated from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer. In the Complete Edition of the works of Rudolf Steiner the original German text is published with the title: Makrokosmos und Mikrokosmos.
