A pivotal figure of modern isotericism, Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was a clairvoyant and supersensitive with a scientific and philosophical education. He believed that man can gain objective knowledge of higher worlds and apply these insights to all fields of human activity. Anthroposophy, the path of wisdom and knowledge he intiated, plots man’s struggle to attain full spiritual development through the practical application of the forces brought by Christ. Steiner saw the spirit as the creative element in evolution, and his work is increasingly accepted as a practical vitalizing force for today’s world.
Rudolf Steiner (1861 1925) was born and grew up in Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia). He became a scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known for his work with Goethe's scientific writings. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the terms Anthroposophy and Spiritual Science for his philosophy, spiritual research, and discoveries. The influence of Steiner's multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, various therapies, philosophy, religious renewal, Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, Goethean science, architecture, and the arts of drama, speech, and eurythmy. In 1924, Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world. He died in Dornach, Switzerland.
