In this most remarkable and in many ways unique course of lectures, Rudolf Steiner describes the inner experience of the states of consciousness known as the Saturn, Sun, Moon, and Earth stages of evolution.Lecture by lecture, Steiner details the experiences of these states available to one who practices the spiritual scientific path of meditation. By this means, these stages and states gain an unexpected and existential reality: suddenly, we recognize what Steiner is talking about. Most remarkable of all, perhaps, is the description of the Earth state with its experience of death, which Christ knew on the Cross at Golgotha, transforming earthly and human evolution.Inner Experiences of Evolution is a translation from German of Die Evolution vom Gesichtspunkte des Wahrhaftigen (GA 132). These lectures were previously included as part of The Spiritual Hierarchies & the Physical World: Reality and Illusion (1996). A previous translation also appeared as Evolution in the Aspect of Realities (Garber).

Inner speech lies at the chaotic intersection of several difficult questions in contemporary philosophy and psychology. On the one hand, these episodes are private mental events. On the other, they resemble speech acts of the sort used in interpersonal communication. Inner speech episodes seem to constitute or express sophisticated trains of conceptual thought but, at the same time, they are motoric in nature and draw on sensorimotor mechanisms for speech production and perception more generally. By using inner speech, we seem to both regulate our bodily actions and gain a unique kind of access to our own beliefs and desires. Inner Speech: New Voices explores this familiar and yet mysterious element of our daily lives, bringing together contributions from leading philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists. In response to renewed interest in the general connections between thought, language, and consciousness, these leading thinkers develop a number of important new theories, raise questions about the nature of inner speech and its cognitive functions, and debate the current controversies surrounding the 'little voice in the head.'

In a challenging philosophic investigation of the origin of consciousness and human culture, Dewart (religion, emeritus, U. of Toronto) proposes a theory to explain the origin of all specifically human traits.

Research analyst James F. Coppedge presents a new approach to the study of evolution. Says Dr. Coppedge: "There have recently come to pass certain spectacular discoveries in the field of biology. These, along with the widely used principles of probability theory, can be fashioned into a highly useful and easy-to-grasp instrument for the inquirer after truth, and for those who would help others to certainty. This new scientific evidence allows the truth about the Creator to become more apparent. There are many reluctant materialists who may welcome this fact. It also encourages believers who may have been apprehensive. It is a relief to discover that science and logic are friends of the reasonable faith taught in the Bible." - Back cover.
