The Austrian philosopher and writer Rudolf Steiner was one of the most original thinkers of the twentieth century. His writings cover a wide range of subjects, and he made valuable and influential contributions in many fields, including education, science, medicine, and social reform. The foundation of his researches was the "science of the spirit" that he called anthroposophy. He maintained that material science could never comprehend the whole of nature, as it excluded the realm of the spirit. Bridging the physical and spiritual worlds, anthroposophy would show the way toward a true understanding of humanity and its relation to the universe.

This is a concise, illustrated introduction to Steiner's life and work, describing how many of his ideas have been put into practice and are still giving inspiration and guidance to many people all over the world.
