By Mathias Maurer, July 2020

We look back on unusual weeks at the service public health. The restrictions on our freedoms as a result of the battle against the coronavirus are, looked at historically, not unique – except for the closure of the churches – but the enemy and setting have changed. [more]

About life in action

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, June 2020

Are we yet sufficiently machine-compliant? Do we educate our children with the necessary rigour to adapt to the requirements of a world which is increasingly being controlled by machines? Do we teach them early enough to see this world as their actual home? Do we educate them in good time to synchronise their life with artificial intelligence? Are we really doing everything we can so that they function optimally and are not left behind in the battle for the remaining well-paid jobs? [more]

Two sisters and a legacy. Waldorf education in New Zealand

By Nana Göbel, May 2020

Anthroposophy came to New Zealand as early as the second decade of the twentieth century through Emma Richmond. Her daughter, the teacher Rachel Crompton-Smith, together with her husband Bernard Crompton-Smith opened the small St George School in Havelock North in 1917 at which girls and boys were taught together, something extraordinary at that time. This impulse was taken up by Ethel Edwina Burbury and Ruth Nelson who founded the anthroposophical Taruna centre and a short time later the first Waldorf school in Hastings. [more]

Deus in machina

By Mathias Maurer, May 2020

The philosopher Pico della Mirandola (1463-1494) wrote in his famous Oration on the Dignity of Man: “You yourself shall determine your [nature] without any restriction and limitation as you see fit.

We are among those fortunate ones whose children all recovered fully and, as we believe to have observed, went through a big developmental step as a result. For that they had to stay in bed for at least four weeks and at home for six.  [more]

Bag of lies

By Mathias Maurer, March 2020

Do you know the story of the man who gathered up all the lies and put them in a sack so that people only ever told one another the truth from then on? People’s life together became so loveless, hard and unbearable that the man quickly opened the sack and let the lies go again. [more]
