Pfeiffer’s Introduction to Biodynamics
Ehrenfried Pfeiffer was a pioneer of biodynamics in North America. This short but comprehensive book is a masterful collection of three key articles introducing the concepts, principles and practice of the biodynamic method, as well as an overview of its early history.
The book includes a short biography of Ehrenfried Pfeiffer by Herbert H. Koepf.
Pfeiffer’s Introduction to Biodynamics was previously published by the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association as Biodynamics: Three Introductory Articles.
About the Author
Dr. Ehrenfried E. Pfeiffer (1899–1961) was born in Munich. He worked closely with Rudolf Steiner to test and document many of the effects of biodynamic practices. Pfeiffer visited the U.S. several times during the 1930s, and was awarded a doctorate for his groundbreaking theory of Sensitive Crystallization Processes as a blood test for detecting cancer. In 1940, he immigrated to the U.S., where he pioneered biodynamic agriculture and helped establish the Biodynamic Farming & Gardening Association. He died in Spring Valley, New York.
