THE EDUCATION OF THE CHILD, 1909 9d.
This little book, written ten years before Dr. Rudolf Steiner
had founded the Waldorf School in Stuttgart, contains the chief
results of anthroposophical investigation into human nature and
the varied interplay of its manifold elements at different
ages. Sentences in the book itself best sum up the spirit of
approach: “We shall not set up demands or programmes, but
simply describe the child-nature. From the nature of the
growing and evolving human being, the proper point of view for
Education will, as it were, spontaneously result. ...
Many are setting about to reform life, without really knowing
life in its foundations. But he who would make proposals as to
the future must not content himself with a knowledge of life
that merely touches life's surface. He must investigate its
LECTURES TO TEACHERS, 1921 2s. 6d.
These ten lectures, held at an educational conference at the
Goetheanum in Dornach in 1921, and reported by the famous Swiss
writer Albert Steffen, contain a complete introduction both
into the basis of Dr. Rudolf Steiner's Art of Education
and into its practical application in school life. The titles
of the various lectures indicate the lines of thought followed
in this course:
The Knowledge of Man as the Basis of the Art of Teaching.
The Knowledge of Health and Disease which is necessary for the Art

THE NEW ART OF EDUCATION, ILKLEY, 1923
Cloth. Crown 8vo. 244pp. 3s.
book contains twelve lectures, followed by a farewell address,
given by Dr. Rudolf Steiner at Ilkley, Yorkshire. The spirit of
this basic course of lectures is expressed in three sentences
by Frau Marie Steiner in her preface to the book: “The
principles laid down by Rudolf Steiner in no sense claim to be
institutions representative of any particular philosophy or
conception of the world. Their aim is to enable the child to
develop and unfold in freedom. The child should live in an
element of soul and spirit that is at once a support and help,
instead of being allowed to sink into a spiritual void, finally
emerging from school life wearied in soul and body.”
THE ESSENTIALS OF EDUCATION, STUTTGART,
Crown 8vo. 98pp. 1924 2s.
This book deals with the fundamental problems of education in
the widest sense, including those essential questions arising
throughout our present civilization. The five lectures here
published from shorthand reports were not only delivered
to educationalists but were held publicly at Stuttgart in
April 1924 before an audience of 1,700 men and women. These
were the last public lectures given by Dr. Rudolf Steiner in
Germany. As the ripest fruit of this work they form a spiritual
heritage of this great teacher of both the child and of
THE FREE WALDORF SCHOOL AT STUTTGART,
F. HARTLIEB, 1926 6d.
This booklet is the translation of an article published in the
WÃ¼rttembergische Lehrerzeitung of October
1926, by Herr F. Hartlieb, the official School Inspector. He
recounts his impressions of the Waldorf School, after
completing his ordinary course of duty on behalf of the
Ministry of Education. Herr F. Hartlieb was not previously
acquainted either with the work of Dr. Rudolf Steiner or that
of the Anthroposophical Society. This article adds therefore
the impressions of a most qualified outside spectator to the
books of Dr. Rudolf Steiner, dealing with the spirit and inner
aspects of this educational work.
