The Kingdom of Childhood

Release Date: 1995
Genre: Education

These talks are perhaps the best introduction to Steiner's ideas on Waldorf education. Given to a small group on his last visit to England in 1924, Steiner shows the need for teachers to develop themselves by transforming their natural gifts, and how teachers can use humor to keep their teaching lively and imaginative. Above all, he stresses the grave importance of doing everything with the awareness that children are citizens of both the spiritual and the physical worlds.

«Das Christentum als mystische Tatsache» nannte der Verfasser diese Schrift, als er in ihr vor acht Jahren den Inhalt von Vorträgen zusammenfaßte, die er im Jahre 1902 gehalten hatte. Mit diesem Titel sollte auf den besonderen Charakter des Buches gedeutet werden. Es ist in ihm nicht bloß der mystische Gehalt des Christentums geschichtlich darzustellen versucht worden, sondern es sollte die Entstehung des Christentums aus der mystischen Anschauung heraus geschildert werden.
