Rudolf Steiner was an Austrian social reformer, architect, and esotericist who founded Anthroposophy. He is considered the father of Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, anthroposophical medicine, and spiritual science. SteinerBooks publishes the complete Collected Works of Rudolf Steiner, as well as the work of contemporary authors expanding upon his thinking.

SteinerBooks and Lindisfarne Books are imprints of Anthroposophic Press, Inc., a 501(c)3, not-for-profit organization and the primary publisher of Rudolf Steiner’s works since 1927

We are proud to be working with the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association! You can find all of our biodynamic books here.
