Who is Rudolf Steiner?

Rudolf Steiner (1864-1925) was an Austrian philosopher, scientist and humanitarian who profoundly influenced Western culture. He worked with scientists, artists, doctors, ministers of religion, teachers and industrialists to help transform our civilisation. His work is best known through Steiner Education, BioDynamics, Anthroposophical Medicine and Architecture. His scientific investigations of the spiritual world led to the development of Anthroposophy, The Wisdom of Man.

Rudolf Steiner gave lectures attended by thousands of people, including those of the Waldorf Astoria cigarette factory in Stuttgart, Germany. The workers were so impressed with the wisdom and warmth of the man that they asked him to set up a school for their children based on these ideas. With the support of Emil Molt, the managing director, the first Waldorf School was formed in 1919 (this is the reason why many Steiner schools are called Waldorf schools). The school became the model for the Steiner Education movement, leading to the building and development of Steiner kindergartens and schools worldwide.

"Our highest endeavour must be to develop individuals who are able out of their own initiative to impart purpose and direction to their lives" (Rudolf Steiner)
