Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925)
Rather than writing a long post at one go, I’ve decided to write about Steiner, from my readings of course, as per episode, that is per mini post. Furthermore, I’m very exhausted at this moment, after a long day of activities, so rather than procrastinating this writing, I’d rather write my first short post on Steiner.
Mr. Steiner was a Croatian and learned science, philosophy, arts and literature, taught humanities and published his own philosophical ideas. How did he manage to do all that? I don’t know. Even now, I’m trying to juggle studying psychology and doing beading,whilst working with my lecturer.
He invented a new name for the philosophy on the education of the young~~~anthroposothy, an idea that combined science and spirituality, putting spiritual dimension of development as the larger part of educational approach in Steiner Waldorf schools.
Oh, on a lighter note, I’m always confused as how to call Steiner inspired schools~~~Rudolf Steiner school, Steiner Waldorf school, Waldorf school????? Which is the founder’s full name? Will update more information on this in the next post as my eyes are beginning to end their services for the day. Meanwhile, indulge in Mr. Steiner’s photo for a while.
“DO I LOOK COOL OR DEAD SERIOUS?”
On another note, I’ve also added a new category at the side margin called ‘Montessori & Non-Montessori Schools’, which will hopefully act as a reference point for parents who are seeking for a place for their little ones.
