About Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) referred to his spiritual philosophy as ‘anthroposophy,’ and he defined it as ‘the consciousness of one's humanity.’ He was a highly-trained clairvoyant who spoke from his direct cognition of the spiritual world. However, he did not see his work as religious or sectarian, but rather sought to found a universal ‘science of the spirit.’

His many published works (written books, lectures, articles, and essays) — which include his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development — invite readers and researchers to develop their own spiritual faculties. He also provided indications for the renewal of many human activities, including education — both general and specialized — agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. He wrote 30 books, penned hundreds of articles and essays for several periodicals, and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe. In 1924 founded the General Anthroposophical Society which today has branches throughout the world. An outstanding legacy for humanity.
