Rudolf Steiner & Anthroposophy
Rudolf SteinerPainting by Christopher Guilfoil
The Waldorf Education movement was founded by Rudolf Steiner in 1919. Much of Steiner's detailed psychology of child development has been supported by modern research in education and neuropsychology. Through Waldorf education, Steiner hoped that young people would develop the capacities of soul and intellect and the strength of will that would prepare them to meet the challenges of their own time and the future.
Rudolf Steiner's writings and lectures are today available in some 325 volumes on a wide range of subjects. His universal genius gave and continues to give rejuvenating impulses in all fields of knowledge and endeavors of life. Besides education, we can look to the practical work done in the medical realm, in biodynamic farming, in architecture, in banking, in social issues, and in the arts and sciences. All these endeavors stem from Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophical spiritual science.
