1861 - 1925
initially esteemed as a Goethean scientist, philosopher and literary critic, he later became known worldwide as an anthroposophist, founder of Waldorf education, artist and social reformer. He wrote books and gave lectures, but above all he tirelessly supported everyone to whom it was important not only “to know, or believe to know, about spirituality but also that this was a spirituality which also proves it`s value in relation to the practical aspects of every-day life”
