Notes about the German versions of this volume:
1st edition in this form 1968. 2nd revised edition 1981. 3rd revised edition published 2006. Based on the stenographic reconstruction of Helene Finckh, who would later become one of Steiner's official stenographers. Thes lectures are among the first she recorded while still in an unofficial capacity, and they show number of deficiencies. The 1981 edition compared the text of the first edition (which was based on the first reconstruction) with the original stenogram, and also with some supplamentary notes from additional sources. Several of the lectures in this volume have been published individually as pamphlets going back as far as 1916.
Lectures in this volume: 13
