Where is the book in which the teacher can read about what teaching is? The children themselves are this book. We should not learn to teach out of any book other than the one lying open before us and consisting of the children themselves.

Rudolf Steiner

An Austrian-born scientist and philosopher, Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925) lectured extensively throughout Europe. Working from esoteric traditions as well as natural science, Steiner developed a three-fold vision of the human being, comprised of body, soul, and spirit. He named this spiritual element of his work Anthroposophy. His work extended into medicine and pharmacology; into biodynamic agriculture and farming; and eventually into political and social activism. The educational branch of Anthroposophy, Waldorf Education, was born out of this activism in the aftermath of WWI.
