Rudolf Steiner's legacy is remarkable. Around the world, thousands of initiatives have been built up around his inspiration and thought, including Steiner Waldorf schools, special education establishments, medical clinics, biodynamic farms, cultural centers, and much more. At the core of this outer work stands the scientific and spiritual path of anthroposophy -- the philosophy and method which he developed throughout his life. This informative biography throws a clear light on the numerous struggles and achievements of his life: from his childhood and then his youthful years as a respected Goethean scholar and philosopher in Weimar; his work in the Theosophical Society and the establishing of the Anthroposophical Society; the development of anthroposophy as a spiritual science; the creation of spiritual initiatives in art, the social sciences, education, medicine, agriculture, religion and architecture; the important Christmas Foundation Conference; and finally his death in 1925.Hemleben's biography of Steiner includes a chronology, personal tributes, an extensive section for further reading, an index, and 69 photographs and illustrations.
