Steiner Rudolf

The Austrian esoteric and philosopher Rudolf Joseph Lorenz Steiner (1861-1925) founded anthroposophy. This spiritual worldview combines various elements of German idealism (Immanuel Kant), the worldview of Johann Wolfgang Goethe, gnosis, Far Eastern teachings, as well as scientific findings of its time. The term anthroposophy encompasses the fields of education/healing education (Waldorf school), medicine, agriculture (biodynamic farming), the art of movement, religion and finance. Anthroposophy strives to understand and recognise the world and human beings as "multidimensional beings" and claims to complement the modern, prevailing "materialistic worldview" with a "spiritual view" of the supersensible.

For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.
