Like the term “philosophy”, Anthroposophy denotes a method of inquiry, a path of research, rather than a content or fixed set of ideas. Rudolf Steiner , who pioneered this path, once characterized Anthroposophy as an upside-down plant, with its roots in the heavens (the world of the spirit) and its blossom and fruit in practical life on earth. This “growing down” means that clear insights born of disciplined spiritual research can help us re-enliven the practice of education, health, farming, technology, and countless other areas of daily life.
