Anthroposophie in Deutschland: theosophische Weltanschauung und gesellschaftliche Praxis 1884-1945, Volume 1

Front Cover
Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, 2007 - Religion - 1884 pages
What is the link between Waldorf schools, organic tomatoes, Weleda healing lotions, fair-trade chemists and Otto Schily and Christian Morgenstern? The anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner. The Anthropological Society established by Steiner between 1900 and 1925 has been the most influential esoteric community in European history. Helmut Zander has now written the first history of anthroposophy and theosophical milieu between 1884 and 1945. Zander examines Steiner's theosophical world-view-products between 1900 and 1914, the anthropological dance (Eurhythmy) and architecture. The study assesses practical fields such as social theory, pedagogy, medicine and farming existing from 1918 until today and makes links to current social problems.
