Education as a Force for Social Change, by Rudolf Steiner

The fundamental affirmation of the human spirit that underlies Waldorf Education is Rudolf Steiner’s legacy to us. He offered the lectures in this book as preparation for the opening of the first Waldorf School, in Stuttgart, Germany in 1919.

The founding of the Waldorf School was part of a movement to bring about social change and healing, amidst the devastation wreaked by the First World War and the dehumanization of the industrial age. In these lectures, Steiner lays the ground for a profound revolution in the ways we think about education.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his study of humanity within the universal context “Anthroposophy”. The insights of anthroposophy are the basis of transformative work in agriculture (Biodynamics), medicine, curative education (Camphill communities), banking and finance, architecture, the visual and performing arts (eurythmy), and more.
