Book Description:
'Spiritual science, by its inherent character and tendency, has the task of providing a practical concept of the world one that comprehends the nature and essence of human life.... For spiritual science is not intended as a theory that is remote from life, one that merely caters to human curiosity or the thirst for knowledge. Nor is it intended as an instrument for a few people who for selfish reasons would like to attain a higher development for themselves. No, it can join and work at the most important tasks of modern people and further their development for the welfare of humankind' (from The Education of the Child).

As early as 1884, while tutoring a boy with special needs, Rudolf Steiner maintained an active interest, which continued through his life, in applying spiritual knowledge to the practical aspects of life. The essay that forms the core of this book was originally published by Steiner in 1907 and represents the earliest expressions of his ideas concerning education. Here Steiner lays out the soul spiritual processes of human development, describing the necessity of understanding how children unfold their being through successive 'births,' beginning with the physical body's entry into earthly life, and culminating in the emergence of the I being at adulthood.

Also included here are several early lectures on education (1906 1911).
