From the 25th to the 27th of November the Goetheanum will be hosting the conference ‹Threefold Order Switzerland›.
The impact of the measures against the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine has further destabilized world conditions. All over the world, people are longing for adequate provision of the necessities of life with moderate working conditions for all, with due regard for sustainability in nature. Furthermore, many people seek to live ever more self-determined and free lives through education and self-development. Last but not least, socially conscious people desire a form of politics that reconciles the concerns of the individual with the whole, independent of economic or power-oriented influences. In regard to these human tendencies and goals, Rudolf Steiner referred to the threefold order of the social organism on the occasion of the First World War in his written work ‹Core Issues of Social Aspects› and in several lectures. An insight into these interrelationships shows how an understanding of economic life, intellectual life, and legal life, both in detail and in their proper interaction, forms the basis for a recovery of social conditions worldwide. It is to this understanding that the organizers of the conference series ‹Brotherhood Economics› have dedicated the conference ‹Threefold Order Switzerland› and the three preliminary events in Bern, Basel, and Zurich.
