Description:
The first edition of this classic introduction to Waldorf education in the larger context of American culture was called The Experience of Knowledge. For there was then, and still is now, a clear call for experience in education. If education becomes the mere acquisition of information, learning becomes dry, abstract, and deadening to students, who turn against it.

The premise of this book is that a human being is a being of body, soul, and spirit, whose core is "eternal spirit", from which center human beings should strive to live. The aim of true education, from this perspective, is to help our children activate this deepest center in themselves. For this, thinking -- not mechanistic, rationalistic thinking, but living, intuitive thinking -- must be brought to life in a new way. Indeed, the organ for such thinking is the heart, where will and feeling join in uniting self and world, morality and truth, love and action.
