About this book

This book brings together Steiner's philosophical, biodynamic and cultural contributions to education, where 'spirit' and ‘soul’ are the creative elements in human evolution. His thought is applied to selected examples of innovative artistic practice and pedagogy of the present. This volume is intended for researchers in the arts and education with an interest in Rudolf Steiner's huge influence on educational thought and policy.This is an urgent point in time to reflect on the role of arts in education and what it might mean for our souls. An accessible yet scholarly study of interdisciplinarity, imagination and creativity is of critical widespread interest now, when arts education in many countries is threatened with near-extinction.

Reviews

“This is a fine book edited by Victoria de Rijke.  Her and her contributors expand the literature on the work of this important pedagogue and, these contributions, at their best, illustrate the spirit of Steiner's own work.  The book will be of interest to new acquaintances of Steiner and to those who have more extensive know.  I would firmly  recommend it.” (Professor Paul Gibbs, CERS, Middlesex University, UK)
