A series of talks and discussions examining the deeper historical challenges facing Europe in the 21st century
In March 1925, the last month of his life, in a conversation about the true tasks and possibilities of Europe, and the forces of opposition to these, Rudolf Steiner named three problems, or questions, that urgently needed 'solving':
"The queston of the two Johns
Where did Kaspar Hauser come from?
Who was Dmitri?"
It is these three questions which we intend to discuss during the conference.
