Kees Boeke, who trained as an architect, is best remembered as a Quaker missionary, WWI pacificist who was a cofounder of an organization that later evolved into War Resisters' International, and educator associated with Montessori methods.

In his 1957 essay/book Cosmic View he presents the universe from the galactic to the microscopic scale, and as the founder of “De werkplaats” (the workshop) school, he introduced his idea of sociocracy where students are co-responsible with teachers for their curriculum.
