Lectures Section

While natural science maintains that we have only five senses Steiner shows that in reality we have twelve. There are the four outer senses related to thinking: the ego sense, the thought sense, the word sense, and the sense of hearing. Then follow the middle four senses related to feeling: warmth, sight, taste, and smell. Finally there are the four inner senses related to will: the sense of balance, the sense of movement, the sense of life, and the sense of touch.

By Rudolf Steiner

Three lectures given at Dornach, Switzerland,
22nd, 23rd, 24th July, 1921

Bn 206.1; GA 206; CW 206

While natural science maintains that we have only five senses Steiner shows that in reality we have twelve. There are the four outer senses related to thinking: the ego sense, the thought sense, the word sense, and the sense of hearing. Then follow the middle four senses related to feeling: warmth, sight, taste, and smell. Finally there are the four inner senses related to will: the sense of balance, the sense of movement, the sense of life, and the sense of touch.

These three lectures, translated from German shorthand reports (unrevised by the lecturer) by Dorothy Lenn, were given in Dornach in late July, 1921. They are from the lecture series entitled, Human Evolution, Cosmic Soul, Cosmic Spirit – II. In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled: Menschenwerden, Weltenseele und Wetlgeist. Zweiter Teil. Der Mensch als geistiges Wesen im historischen Werdegang. Der Mensch in seinem Zusammenhang mit dem Kosmos. Band VI (vol. 206 in the Bibliographic Survey).

This volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
