Rudolf Steiner was an Austrian philosopher who founded the Anthroposophy movement and wrote about a balance between science and faith.
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was a prolific philosopher, spiritual thinker and leader, author, educator and social innovator who profoundly impacted the development of spirituality, education, architecture and agriculture around the world. Born in Kovin, Austria-Hungary (now Serbia), his novel approach to science blended elements of natural philosophy, anthropology, religion and esotericism. Steiner's ideas inspired the founding of Waldorf Education with its intuitive emphasis on learning through creative play. He also propagated biodynamic agriculture based on his unique interpretation of the classical four elements model; this form of regenerative agriculture dispenses with most forms of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides and instead follows holistic methods that nurture soil fertility. Steiner's revolutionary vision has been instrumental in a better understanding of human existence and how we can exist in harmony with our environment.
