RUDOLF STEINER (1861-1925) became a respected and well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, particularly known for his work on Goethe's scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his earlier philosophical principles into an approach to methodical research of psychological and spiritual phenomena.
Steiner's writings covered a wide range of subjects and he made valuable and influential contributions in many fields, including education, science, medicine and social reform. The basis of his researches was the science of the spirit which he called "anthroposophy". He maintained that material science could never comprehend the whole of nature as it excluded the realm of the spirit. Bridging the physical and spiritual worlds, anthroposophy would show the way towards a true understanding of humanity and its relation to show the way towards a true understanding of humanity and its relation the universe.
His multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, philosophy, religion, education (The Waldorf schools), special education (the Camphill movement), economics, agriculture (biodynamics), science, architecture, and the arts (drama, speech and eurythmy). In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which has branches throughout the world today.
