The Austrian esotericist 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 covers the areas of life: education/healing education (Waldorf School), medicine, agriculture (biodynamic agriculture), the art of movement, religion and finance. Anthroposophy strives to understand and recognize the world and human beings as "multidimensional beings" and claims to complement the modern, prevailing "materialistic world view" with a "spiritual view" of the supersensible.
