LECTURE: An Introduction to Questions of Diversity & Race in Rudolf Steiner’s Spiritual Science
December 14, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Rudolf Steiner’s research into human evolution is complex, and his views of cultures and peoples can be profound, but also controversial. Is spiritual science immune to systemic racism, and if not, is there a way to overcome it? In this 90-minute open lecture, Cory Eichmann will introduce the major questions and controversies surrounding race and diversity in Steiner’s work.
For those interested in diving into this material more deeply, Cory will be offering an 8-week Continuing Education course on Diversity & Race in Rudolf Steiner’s Spiritual Science through the Camphill Academy. To learn more about the course, visit camphill.edu/continuing-education.
