This is a reader-friendly Waldorf “taster,” with three public lectures by Rudolf Steiner on Waldorf education and a thought-provoking, accessible introduction by a Waldorf teacher and longtime student of Steiner’s pedagogy.
These lectures by Steiner present what he sees as the “fundamentals” in a matter-of-fact, objective, non-dogmatic way. The introduction, wide-ranging and informative, treats of Waldorf education and methodology in general, explaining that, before all else, a Waldorf School is a good school. This is a must-read for anyone involved with, connected to or interested in Waldorf education.
