Overview

E.A.K. Stockmeyer writers: The five lectures here published...were delivered during the educational Conference organized by the General Anthroposophical Society and the College of Teachers of the Free Waldorf School, Stuttgart, in April 1924. They are the last public lecutres delivered by Rudolf Steiner in germany... The style of the lectures seems to me like a gentle caress on the curly head of a child whose bright or troubled eyes look up to us questioningly or beseechingly...seventeen hundred men and women listened to him, and the prolonged, generous applause from this gread crowd at the end of every lecture was deeply moving; while at the end of the last lecture the appluase became a great ovation which seemed as it would never cease, the audience rising as one person... One year later this man who was loved by so many closed his eyes in Dornach. What he gave in these lectures has become a heritage...

At the close of his last lecture, Steiner summed up all he meant to say in six lines: To devote oneself to matter is to grind down souls.

To find oneself in the spirit is to connect with human beings.

To see oneself in human beings is to construct worlds..

This book, with its companion volume, The Roots of Education, constitutes one of the best, most mature introductions to Waldorf education.
