His nascent project of an anthroposophy 'art' is a risky attempt to present statements from theosophical secret teachings, supplemented by his own views, as results of a scientific, that is to say methodogically proven and inter-subjectively verifiable epistemological process. All existing biographies of Steiner show that he succeeds in enforcing his view of his development on his devotees, which sees his movement from the position of an individual anarchist, to that of head of the German theosophists, as one continual educational process.

He turned to the first practitioners of his anthroposophical pedagogy and asked with pathos: And is it not a holy religious duty to nurture through education the godly-spiritual in every man who is born, appears, and reveals himself? Is the service of education not a religious cult in the highest sense of the word?
