Rudolf Steiner - Golden Dawn member, appointed as head of Theosophy Germany & Austria by Besant
Rudolf Joseph Lorenz Steiner (27(25?) February 1861[3] – 30 March 1925) was an Austrian mystic,[4] philosopher, social reformer, architect, and esotericist.[5][6] Steiner gained initial recognition at the end of the nineteenth century as a literary critic and published philosophical works including The Philosophy of Freedom. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he founded an esoteric spiritual movement, anthroposophy, with roots in German idealist philosophy and theosophy; other influences include Goethean science and Rosicrucianism. In the first, more philosophically oriented phase of this movement, Steiner attempted to find a synthesis between science and spirituality;[7] his philosophical work of these years, which he termed spiritual science, sought to apply the clarity of thinking characteristic of Western philosophy to spiritual questions,[8]:291 differentiating this approach from what he considered to be vaguer approaches to mysticism.
