Term (from ancient Greek ánthrōpos "man" and sophίa "wisdom") for a spiritual and esoteric world view founded by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) as well as the associated path of training and knowledge. One of the main sources of anthroposophical teaching is occult "secret science", which Rudolf Steiner claimed to have acquired through research into a spiritual world that existed for him with the help of "clairvoyant organs". This spiritual world view combines various elements of German idealism (Immanuel Kant), Goethe's world view, gnosis (special religious knowledge), Far Eastern teachings and the scientific findings of the time. The term anthroposophy encompasses the fields of architecture (see Goetheanum), education/curative education (Waldorf School), medicine, agriculture (biodynamic agriculture), eurythmy (language and music), religion and finance.
