Adolescence – Know yourself!

Know yourself – the point of the humanities

By Andre Bartoniczek, October 2020

“Know yourself” – with these words at the entrance of the Temple of Apollo the people were welcomed who came to Delphi to find answers to their existential questions from the Oracle: how can we live in harmony with one another? Should war be waged? Is now the right time for sowing? Should I marry this woman? [more]

Adolescence – Know yourself!

The initiation of young people. A little known task in Rudolf Steiner’s art of education

By Valentin Wember, October 2020

The night from 10 to 11 January 1881 was a bitterly cold Vienna winter’s night. Rudolf Steiner remained up late, sat in his room, reflected on a number of philosophical questions and then turned back to a concern which had occupied him for the whole of his life: self-knowledge and self-experience. He had read the following in the philosopher Schelling: “In all of us there is a secret, wonderful ability to withdraw from the change of time into our innermost (...) self and there (...) look at the eternal in us.” [more]

Igniting the spirit

By Mathias Maurer, October 2020

Adolescence is a time of transition – it turns the world on its head in order to give birth to the “inner human being”. The impetus for action should come not from outside but from within the person. But everything of an intellectual nature, all “rigidified, objective science which encompasses what is dead” – as Steiner says – thrusts a “stake into the heart” of youthful vitality. [more]

Wake-up call

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, September 2020

Recently, when watching an old film, I have occasionally got the feeling: “Hey, don’t you realise you’re much too close to each other and standing in too large groups? Why aren’t you paying attention?” Only then my brain gets into gear and explains to me that a) it is a historical film, i.e. made before March 2020, b) we are all still learners and therefore c) the last word has not been spoken as to where this madness begins and ends. [more]

Wood, metal and stone

By Stephan Elbracht, September 2020

Wood, metal and stone not only require different tools but also quite different skills and states of mind. Humans and trees are connected through the breathing – their breathing corresponds with ours. But what the trees bequeath us, what they gift us and what we take from them is the hard, bony frame. [more]

The art in practical work. Handwork lessons in Waldorf school

By Anette Sigler, September 2020

For those unfamiliar with Waldorf education, it possesses some strange features and handwork lessons are considered by some to be among them. Even the name alone! Where similar lessons exist in mainstream schools, they are mostly called “textile design” which somehow sounds more modern and demanding. But this fails to refer to the development and cultivation of manual dexterity which is intended with the handwork lessons at Waldorf schools. Furthermore, in “handwork” the latter half of the word reminds us of the perseverance which is required when workpieces are produced over the course of a whole school year. [more]

Art education – a workshop report from upper school

By Henning Hauke, September 2020

Generally speaking, art is not compatible with industrial reproduction in the art lessons of the Waldorf school. The question is whether technically reproduced media – such as for example photography or video – can’t nevertheless be used creatively in school. [more]
