This chapter focuses on the essential ananism of Vladimir Sergeevich Solov'ëv's core philosophical concept, Godmanhood, which incorporates human dignity as a constituent and inviolable principle. Solov'ëv's method, proceeding up to the divine from analysis of the human, is brilliantly deployed from the beginning of Lectures on Godmanhood. The conception of human nature that Solov'ëv introduced in Lectures on Godmanhood forms the basic philosophical framework of his subsequent works. Critique of Abstract Principles, written concurrently with Lectures on Godmanhood, is an indispensable exposition of the philosopher's whole system. Solov'ëv dealt with ethics before epistemology and metaphysics because he thought theory should explicate what moral experience immediately discloses about reality. Later, in Justification of the Good, he defended this approach as the "autonomy of morality". Human autonomy, dignity, and perfectibility are the conditions of Godmanhood or the Kingdom of God.
