Rudolf Steiner that intergrates the practical, artistic
and conceptual elements of academics.
Steiner was the founder of Anthroposophy which is
defined as a system of beliefs that develop cognition
and the awareness of spiritual awarenes.
The Anthroposophical Society was founded by Rudolf Steiner in Switzerland in 1923. According to the Anthroposophical Society in America, "it seeks to support individuals who are working on their own inner development and who wish to bring the fruit of that inner work to benefit the wider world. As a modern path of knowing, its doors are open to all who seek its approach and who wish to support its activities." Anthroposophy is a source of spiritual knowledge that emphasizes inner development concentrating on our relationship with the spiritual world. It maintains that every human being has inherent wisdom that can ultimately transform society and themselves. Waldorf education ideals are based on this theory by creating curriculum that promotes students to develop their inner being. "The healthy social life is found when in the mirror of each human soul the whole community finds its reflection. And when in the community the virtue of each on is living." -Rudolf Steiner First school establish in Germany in 1919.
