Episode details

This is a recording of the August 3, 2021, article that explored how society has its own nature and lawfulness — a fact borne out by the observations of social scientists, but still almost entirely misunderstood (to the detriment of us all). This lawfulness was described most recently by the French economist Thomas Piketty and most clearly by the early 20th century philosopher Rudolf Steiner.
