Book Description:
'Vague and general phrases ... cannot provide the basis for a genuine art of education, which depends on real knowledge of the human being. It is not that such phrases are wrong, but that they are as useless as saying that all parts of a machine must be made to work together harmoniously. To make a machine work you have to apply real, detailed knowledge, not phrases and truisms. For the art of education likewise, what is important is specific insight into the way the human being is constituted, and how each aspect develops.' Rudolf Steiner In his earliest and most succinct statement regarding education, Rudolf Steiner describes the stages of childhood development and explains why it is important to introduce aspects of the curriculum at specific times. He relates developmental steps in children to the 'births' of the non physical aspects of the human being the ether body, which accompanies the change of teeth; the astral body, which appears at puberty; and the birth of the 'I,' which heralds individual maturation into adulthood. Without this knowledge, says Steiner, well meaning though misguided educational theories and practices can cause harm. Educating Children Today provides an excellent introduction the the ideas behind Waldorf education.
