Summary and Info
This book from Rudolf Steiner constitute one of the most comprehensive introductions to his philosophy, psychology, and practice of education. He describes the union of science, art, religion, and morality, which is the goal of all his work and underlies his comprehensive ides on educational renewal. Against this background, Steiner describe a new developmental psychology. Based on the development of children’s consciousness, he discusses the ways various subjects should be presented so that they can grow inwardly in children. Unless children absorb the right subject in the right way and at the right time, the inner freedom they need so much for modern life will not become part of their nature. Here is an excellent introduction to Waldorf education.
