Apparently, some people want biodynamics without anthroposophy. It’s doubtful whether that’s even remotely the same thing, even some of the concrete practices and views are adopted. The esoteric side of biodynamics is, after all, what really distinguishes it from other farming philosophies and methods.
There was a recent article about some efforts made in Austria to separate some biodynamic principles from the spiritual dogma of anthroposophy.
While widely admired, Steiner’s original concepts have at times been derided by some farmers, and the occasional writer: The burying of cow horns, the tiny amounts of homeopathic mixtures used in the field, the new-age spiritualism.
This new effort, called Respekt, is less concerned with Steiner’s mandates and anthroposophy, and more concerned with managing farms as living entities. It could be viewed as somewhat more pragmatic biodynamics, although I have no doubt there’s a debate coming about exactly what that term means.
