Anthroposophy (19TH-20TH CENTURIES)

The teachings of the German occult philosopher Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), derived from an ancient Greek phrase meaning ‘wisdom about man’.

Steiner held that the development of man’s spiritual awareness was of paramount importance. He attempted to treat the investigation of spirituality as a ‘scientific’ study, and based much of his research upon his central contention that man’s intelligence was derived from a more spiritually perceptive form of consciousness which required revival.

Christ’s self-sacrifice was, he argued, a catalyst for such a realization of man’s spiritual potential.
