About Eugen Kolisko

  • Eugen Kolisko (21 March 1893 – 29 November 1939) was an Austrian-German physician and educator who was born in Vienna.
  • He studied medicine at the University of Vienna, and in 1917 became a lecturer of medical chemistry.
  • He was the son of pathologist Alexander Kolisko (1857-1918). Eugen Kolisko is remembered for his pioneer work in anthroposophy.
  • He was introduced to anthroposophy through his classmate, Walter Johannes Stein (1891-1957).
  • In 1914, he first attended lectures given by Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy.
  • Consequently, he became a member of the Anthroposophical Society, and in 1920 was invited as an instructor to the newly established Waldorf School at Stuttgart by Emil Molt (1876-1936). Kolisko specialized in preventative medicine, and at the Waldorf School he worked with other teachers in creating a curriculum that focused on the spiritual and physical development of school children.
  • He was instrumental in construction of several artistic therapies, such as anthroposophic music therapy and eurythmy.
  • During the 1930s, he left the Waldorf School in Stuttgart for political reasons, relocating to England in 1936, where he undertook the establishment of a private educational institute.
  • Kolisko died of cardiac failure outside London on 29 November 1939. His wife, Lili Kolisko (1893-1976), introduced a concept known as Steigbildmethode (capillary dynamolysis method), which dealt with Bildschaffenden methods for assessment of food quality from an anthroposophic standpoint.
  • Today, the "Kolisko Conferences" are a series of international conferences of teachers, physicians, therapists and parents who meet in order to further the concepts and philosophy of a Waldorf education.
  • Eugen Kolisko was the author of numerous written works, published both in German and English; the following are a few of his better known English publications: "The Human Organism in the Light of Anthroposophy" "Lead and the Human Organism" "Nutrition and Agriculture" "The Threefold Human Organism: A Series of Lectures" "Three Fundamental Problems of the Anthroposophical Knowledge of Man I.
