RUDOLF STEINER, philosopher, scientist and educator, (1861–1925),
has achieved world-wide fame as the originator of the Science of the
Spirit known as Anthroposophy, and as a pioneer of genius in a
variety of fields of learning.
“Steiner thought, spoke and wrote as a scientist. Though he
challenged many of the conclusions of science, he did so as one who
knew at first-hand the whole trend of scientific thought.”
A. P. Shepherd, A Scientist of the Invisible.
“That the academic world has managed to dismiss Steiner's
works as inconsequential and irrelevant, is one of the intellectual
wonders of the twentieth century. Anyone who is willing to study
those vast works with an open mind (let us say, a hundred of his
titles) will find himself faced with one of the greatest thinkers of
all time, whose grasp of the modern sciences is equaled only by his
profound learning in the ancient ones.”
Russell W. Davenport, The Dignity of Man.
“Steiner's gift to the world vas a moral and meditative
way to objective vision, a way appropriate to the psychological and
physiological constitution of Western man. If accepted in the spirit
of humility, altruism and truthfulness in which it was given, it
could bridge the existing cleft between a man's religious
conviction and his intellect and will, It could add
comprehension to our existing knowledge and thus revive the vision
without which our generation will hardly find the solution to its
