Literally translated, anthroposophy means the wisdom of the human being. The term was formulated by Rudolf Steiner, who described it as the “consciousness of one’s humanity.” When he was asked to define anthroposophy, the educator Frances Edmonds said it is “the next person you meet.” We also think of it as the relationship between the human being and the whole of existence: Anthroposophy is a lens that can shed light on our relationships—to ourselves, to each other, to all living beings and to the world around us.
