Mystery of the Universe

The Human Being, Model of Creation (CW 201)

Rudolf Steiner Introduction by Gilbert Childs Revised by Matthew Barton

240 pp.  

Rudolf Steiner Press




16 Lectures, Dornach, April 9 - May 16, 1920 (CW 201)

What is the ultimate secret of the universe? In these eloquent lectures, Steiner describes the human being as the model of creation and the primary focus of the cosmos. He talks extensively of our intimate connection with the constellation of cosmic forces, the zodiac, and the planets.

The ancient Mystery traditions called individuals to "know thyself!" Rudolf Steiner tells us that this maxim does not ask us to subjectively study our own personal character but to understand our true, archetypal human nature and our decisive place in the universe. As human beings, we will progress and evolve in a real sense only by understanding our human nature and the surrounding spiritual forces - as microcosms within the greater macrocosm.

This book contributes significantly to the development of the contemporary spiritual science of the human being.


This volume is a translation from German of Der Mensch in Zusammenhang mit dem Kosmos 1: Entsprechung zwischen Mikrokosmos und Makrokosmos Der Mensch - Eine Heiroglype des Weltenalls (GA 201). A previous edition was published as Man: Hieroglyph of the Universe.
