Editorial Note.

These lectures were not public ones, but were given to members of the Theosophical Society founded by H. P. Blavatsky; who were accustomed to specific terms to designate planetary evolution, the members of the human being, and so on. In his written works, Rudolf Steiner used terms of which in 1903 he said that “for certain reasons I make use of an occult language that differs somewhat from the expressions used in published Theosophical writings, but which are of course in full harmony with them in meaning.”

The terms which were exclusively used later by Rudolf Steiner, terms to which the present-day reader is accustomed, will be found in the notes at the end of each lecture.
