The Beginning and the End
of the Scientific Method


“Modern Science, and the scientism based on it, so far from being the only possible ‘reality-principal’ is merely one way of conceiving the nature of reality; a way moreover that has arisen only recently and which there is no reason to suppose will last forever.”

— Owen Barfield, from the foreword

During the last two decades of the nineteenth century the Austrian-born 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. After the turn of the century he began to develop his earlier philosophical principles into an approach to methodical research of psychological and spiritual phenomena.

His multi-faceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, science, education (Waldorf schools), special education, philosophy, religion, economics, agriculture (Bio-Dynamic method), architecture, drama, the new art of eurythmy, and other fields. In 1924 he founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world.
