Combining Lía Tummer’s lucid text and Lato’s creative and playful illustrations, Rudolf Steiner and Anthroposophy is a unique and highly engaging “graphic” introduction, suitable for both curious beginners and dedicated students.

At the dawn of the twentieth century, Rudolf Steiner presented Anthroposophy as a “spiritual science” that expands on the restricted scientific, materialist ideology of our time. Based on profound knowledge of humankind and our relationship with nature and the universe, Anthroposophy provides not only rejuvenating impulses for the most diverse spheres of human activity—including medicine, education, agriculture, the arts, and science—but also answers the eternal questions posed by humankind, on which contemporary science remains indifferent:

What is life?
Where do we come from when we are born?
Where do we go when we die?
What is the meaning of pain and illness?
Why do people experience such differing challenges in life?

This charming book depicts the development of a universal genius, from his childhood in the untamed beauty of the Austrian Alps to the sublimities of human wisdom—from his work as a Goethe scholar to building the extraordinary Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland.
