During the last five years of his life, Rudolf Steiner dedicated his efforts to seeking both to reanimate the esoteric foundations of anthroposophy and to bring anthroposophy into the cultural mainstream. This involved a new language, aided powerfully by an influx of young people (the so-called youth movement) dedicated to bringing spirituality into all areas of life. Many of these young people were university students who wanted practical ways to bring anthroposophy into their areas of study. Steiner saw in their enthusiasm a new future for anthroposophy and understood that if anthroposophy could begin to reshape higher education as it had the lower grades through the Waldorf Movement, culture could truly begin to be transformed.

In 1921 the Association for Anthroposophic College Studies was founded, and courses and conferences began to be given in Dornach and a number of large cities throughout Europe. This Berlin Course drew more than a thousand participants. The goal was 'to give an impression of the possible incentives anthroposophy could offer various scientific fields.' Each day began with a lecture by Steiner, followed by presentations from other lecturers, artistic events, panel discussions, and more. The lectures included Anthroposophy and Natural Science; The Organizations of Humans and of Animals; Anthroposophy and Philosophy; Anthroposophy and Education; Anthroposophy and Social Science; Anthroposophy and Theology; and Anthroposophy and Theory of Language.

About the Author:

Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) was born in the small village of Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia), where he grew up. As a young man, he lived in Weimar and Berlin, where he became a well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known especially for his work with Goethe’s scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings. The influence of Steiner’s multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, various therapies, philosophy, religious renewal, Waldorf education, education for special needs, threefold economics, biodynamic agriculture, Goethean science, architecture, and the arts of drama, speech, and eurythmy. In 1924, Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world. He died in Dornach, Switzerland.
