10 lectures, Oslo, November 24 - December 4, 1921 (CW 79)

The lectures in this book cover a wide range of topics, though Rudolf Steiner continually brings the focus back to the importance of "I"-consciousness in relation to the higher worlds. Hence, the title of this English edition: Self-Consciousness. In this sense, the content of these talks in Norway remains valid for today and our world situation, which is even more desperately needs change that is in keeping with spiritual-scientific knowledge.

The need for developing "consciousness of the self as the spiritual essence of the free, individualistic, single-personality human being" is one of Steiner's unique contributions to the evolving history of humankind. This book marks another milestone on that path.
