Rudolf Steiner stated that the primary function of education is to exercise the students' faculties of thinking, feeling and willing. These basic human qualities manifest in civilization as the "eternal verities" of truth, beauty and goodness, and these in turn in science, art and religion.
Gilbert Childs' goal in this carefully crafted book is twofold--to illustrate the practical application of the above nine factors and to substantiate assertion by Rudolf Steiner that his philosophy and educational practice arose to meet the demands of our time. the author's presentation provides stimulating thoughts for both teachers and students of education, as well as all who are interested in improving the way we prepare our children for life.
