    • I. Soul-and-Spirit in Man's Physical Constitution
    • The physical organism of man is considered today to consist of more
    • or less solid-fluid substances; but as well as his solid, physical body,
    • man has within him as definite organisms, a fluid body, an air-body
    • and a warmth-body. — The connections of these organisms with the
    • members of man's whole being and with the different Ethers. —

    • Soul and Spirit in the Human Physical Constitution
    • Today I want to interpolate a theme which may possibly seem to you
    • somewhat remote, but it will be of importance for the further
    • development of subjects we are studying at the present time. We have
    • been able to gather together many essential details which are
    • essential for a knowledge of man's being. On the one side, we are
    • gradually discovering man's place in the life of the cosmos, and on
    • the other, his place in the social life. But it will be necessary
    • today to consider certain matters which make for a better
    • understanding of man's being and nature.
    • When man is studied by modern scientific thinking, one part only of
    • the being is taken into consideration. No account whatever is taken of
    • the fact that in addition to his physical body, man also has higher
    • members. But we will leave this aside today and think about something
    • that is more or less recognized in science and has also made its way
    • into the general consciousness.
    • In studying the human being, only those elements which can be pictured
    • as solid, or solid-fluidic, are regarded as belonging to his organism.
    • It is, of course, acknowledged that the fluid and the aeriform
    • elements pass into and out of the human being, but these are not in

    • The Moral as the Source of World-Creative Power
    • I tried yesterday to give certain indications about the constitution
    • of man, and at the end it was possible to show that a really
    • penetrating study of human nature is able to build a bridge between
    • man's external constitution and what it unfolds, through
    • self-consciousness, in his inner life. As a rule no such bridge is
    • built, or only very inadequately built, particularly in the science
    • current today. It became clear to us that in order to build this
    • bridge we must know how man's constitution is to be regarded. We saw
    • that the solid or solid fluid organism — which is the sole object
    • of study today and is alone recognized by modern science as organic in
    • the real sense — we saw that this must be regarded as only one of
    • the organisms in the human constitution; that the existence of a fluid
    • organism, an aeriform organism, and a warmth-organism must also be
    • recognized. This makes it possible for us also to perceive how those
    • members of man's nature which we are accustomed to regard as such,
    • penetrate into this delicately organized constitution. Naturally, up
    • to the warmth-organism itself, everything is to be conceived as
    • physical body. But it is paramountly the etheric body that takes hold
    • of the fluid body, of everything that is fluid in the human organism;

    • The Path to Freedom and Love and their Significance in World Events
    • Man stands in the world as thinking, contemplative being on the one
    • hand, and as a doer, a being of action, on the other; with his
    • feelings he lives within both these spheres. With his feeling he
    • responds, on the one side, to what is presented to his observation; on
    • the other side, feeling enters into his actions, his deeds. We need
    • only consider how a man may be satisfied or dissatisfied with the
    • success or lack of success of our deeds, how in truth all action is
    • accompanied by impulses of feeling, and we shall see that feeling
    • links the two poles of our being: the pole of thinking and the pole of
    • deed, of action. Only through the fact that we are thinking beings are
    • we Man in the truest sense. Consider too, how everything that
    • gives us the consciousness of our essential manhood is connected with
    • the fact that we can inwardly picture the world around us; we live in
    • this world and can contemplate it. To imagine that we cannot
    • contemplate the world would entail forfeiting our essential manhood.
    • As doers, as men of action, we have our place in social life and
    • fundamentally speaking, everything we accomplish between birth and
    • death has a certain significance in this social life.
    • In so far as we are contemplative beings, thought operates in
