Scientific thinking habits: obstacle for the Anthroposophical world view

Once a modern person’s thinking habits are schooled in the present-day scientific way of thinking, he cannot easily change over to an Anthroposophical way of thinking. We certainly have to be aware that we cannot expect to find acknowledgement of Anthroposophical knowledge from the side of science.

Those people who have not schooled  their thinking habits on today’s scientific activity or young people who grew into these scientific thinking habits but also immediately left them behind again, will be the ones to recognize the merits of the Anthroposophical world view.
