Trust – the miracle of being human

By Henning Kullak-Ublick, February 2019

Trust is perhaps the most important condition to find our bearing in the world at all. That applies with regard to children but also our everyday practical life – and it does so to a far greater extent than its opposite, control. How else is it possible to move through traffic with millions of cars? What does this sibling of love, which can only be given as a gift but not demanded, mean for the growing child? [more]

Religiosity in education?

By Stefan Grosse, February 2019

Religious matters have for a considerable period of time been treated as private matters because they are reduced to the content of the confession and belief of the individual person. Religious matters are thus relocated into the private sphere like our taste in music or culinary preferences and they are thus increasingly denied any culturally relevant meaning in society. Such a reduction reflects an understanding of religiosity which is much too narrow in its frame of reference. [more]

Trust in the school organism

By Christof Wiechert, February 2019

“Trust” comes at the very top of those subjects which people do not like to touch on and discuss. So many improper demands are made that it almost appears more desirable to work without trust in the college of teachers. Acting only out of the organisational structure, on the basis of a defined task list and in accordance with controlled agreements is the alternative. We meanwhile know that this doesn’t work either. It appears that people do indeed want to trust someone and something. [more]

I spy with my inner eye

By Alexandra Handwerk, January 2019

Do you know the following joke among anthroposophists? What was Rudolf Steiner’s favourite game? Answer: I spy with my inner eye! Steiner was clairvoyant. To a high degree. And he gave a lot of instructions about a meditative life. Whole books of them. [more]

Why Waldorf teachers meditate

By Claus-Peter Röh, January 2019

The question as to the different quality of the two meditations for Waldorf school and preschool teachers is inextricably associated with the question of the identity and intentionality of this profession. Both of them were created in the historical situation of the founding of the first Waldorf school. Both bear the core aspiration of this educational movement within them. [more]

1968: impulses and consequences

By Christoph Strawe, January 2019

It is fifty years since the 1968 movement: in the retrospectives which can be found to celebrate this anniversary in the various media the assessments are highly controversial. If some see it as the great emancipatory start into a better world, others speak at the extreme end of the spectrum of the uprising of unworldly and mislead “do-gooders” – with a socially destructive effect which has lasted to the present day. [more]

Transhumanism – the end of the human being?

By Mathias Maurer, January 2019

An unusual conference took place at the Goetheanum from 7-9 September: a cultural conference on the subject of the transhumanist vision of the future. Unusual not just because of the location where it was held, but also because speakers spoke about this highly relevant subject whose fields of work could not be more different. [more]
