The essence of Waldorf education / PETER SELG ; Translated by Margot M. Saar
- In this passionate, inspiring, and moving book, Peter Selg, speaking out of a deep knowledge of Anthroposophy and extensive experience as a child psychiatrist, goes back to the original impulses underlying the first Waldorf School to show their continuing validity and how they still respond to what we need today. --, From this point of view, Waldorf education is future-oriented, based on a holistic worldview that is simultaneously humanistic, scientific, and spiritual, and unfolds through a developmental curriculum and a teacher-student relationship based in love. --, and Through this story of the first Waldorf School we learn to see Waldorf Education in a new way: in its essence, as a healing model of what education might become if the primary relationship, the inner core of a school, is the free relationship between teacher and student. --Book Jacket.
