In these lectures, given just before the start of World War I, Rudolf Steiner describes the panoramic reality of the spiritual worlds encountered by human beings after death. He speaks of the joys and sufferings experienced in those worlds by people of different characters, the vision of the "ideal human being" that souls experience, the cosmic midnight hour, the deeper causes behind such phenomena as materialism and criminality, the processes leading to rebirth in the world of the senses, and why, in the flesh, we must lose our direct perception of the spiritual worlds.
Steiner also shows how the modern spiritual quest can be built on the foundation of modern science, and describes in detail some of the methods through which direct perception of the worlds of soul and spirit can be developed.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', meaning 'wisdom of the human being'. As a highly developed seer, he based his work on direct knowledge and perception of spiritual dimensions. He initiated a modern and universal 'science of spirit', accessible to anyone willing to exercise clear and unprejudiced thinking. spacer spacer From his spiritual investigations Steiner provided suggestions for the renewal of many activities, including education (both general and special), agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. Today there are thousands of schools, clinics, farms and other organizations involved in practical work based on his principles. His many published works feature his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development. Steiner wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe. In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world.
