A lot of stuff that Plato says is also heavilly metaphoric. So I guess you consider him like a religious guru too?
"Religious" is debatable, but he used a lot of partially religous myths (for example the one of Atlantis) in his philosophical dialogues. I'd say he was most definitely a guru - he after all started the first "academy" for philosophy in Greece and students as well as guest teachers came from all over the known world to study there. If that's not a guru... who is?

In certain circles the pope is also considered to be a guru!

I'd argue that his followers don't follow him because of his personality, charisma or knowledge - they follow him for the job he has in a very systematic organization.

In short: he does not have what it takes to be a real guru. Some of the better popes before him probably do qualify...

Re: Steiner Schule

Just found this quote: "Our highest endeavour must be to develop individuals who are able of their own initiative to impart purpose and direction to their lives".

Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner
Find me ONE educator who will not say that even without knowing Steiner, even in France.
