Frederick Amrine

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), founder of a philosophy called anthroposophy, was a philosopher and a clairvoyant visionary who provided transformative insights in numerous fields, especially education (Waldorf), agriculture (biodynamics), and in social theory and new social finance (The Threefold Social Order). His most important esoteric teachings were regarding reincarnation and karma, and a new theory of humanity’s historical development called the evolution of consciousness.
