Norse Stories and their Significance, The

Seller ID: 10344

ISBN: 0945803435


At first sight the Norse stories appear to be a weird and wonderful collection of tales, illogical in sequence and with no coherent theme. . . . However that may be, there is in the Norse stories a great depth of knowledge and, fragmentary as they are, they are probably relics of old Mystery wisdom. They present a picture of evolution, of the creation and development of humankind and its connection with higher beings; they show the human being’s struggle with adverse powers, the fading of the old world conception and the birth of the ego which leads to new powers of perception.

Teaching Mathematics

By: WILKINSON ROY

Price: $23.00

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner College Press:

Seller ID: 10246

ISBN: 0945803842


Mathematics, in the context of the classroom, often seems to be a trivial affair of counting and measuring, but in itself it has wide-ranging implications. The teacher who dwells a little on these will be in a position to convey the material to his or her pupils in a much more extensive and interesting way than one who takes a more superficial attitude. Mathematics, the science of space and number, is something universal and all-embracing. Its manifestations are to be found everywhere, sometimes apparent, sometimes less apparent; but, like all nature, it will reveal itself to the enquiring min... View more info

Teaching English

Price: $22.00

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner College Press:

Seller ID: 12084


Language has become so commonplace that we think very little about it, but, like so much of the world that we take for granted, a little reflection may lead us to ponder on its mysteries. Somewhere, at some time, it has its origins. It has gone through stages of development. It has various manifestations-the spoken word and the written script. It is a means of communication and dissemination of knowledge; it is also a medium of artistic expression. What is the place of grammar? Why are there so many different languages? In this booklet we will attempt to deal with these more philosoph... View more info

ISBN: 1869890515


Rudolf Steiner (1863-1925) was an inspiring teacher who founded an educational movement. He was a pioneer of a comprehensive, co-educational form of education which assisted the whole development of children from kindergarten through to the end of high school. He encouraged teachers to understand the spiritual, psychological and physical dimensions of child development. Teachers, children and parents are encouraged to create "free schools" where education for both freedom and responsibility is encouraged. Roy Wilkinson offers this compendium of Rudolf Steiner on education as a guide. I... View more info

Commentary on Old Testament Stories

Seller ID: 10363

ISBN: 0945803575


Perspectives on Old Testament stories from the Creation to the return to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity, and the story of Esther. The following notes are intended to be elucidations of the Old Testament stories in the light of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual science. With the exception of the Creation, where the actual Biblical text is used, a summary of each story is given, followed by indications of its background significance. It must not be concluded, however, that such explanation as is offered is the only one. The author writes as a student and not as an authority. Where a ... View more info

Temperaments in Education, The

By: WILKINSON, ROY

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner College Press:

Seller ID: 10343

ISBN: 0945803524


What we call temperaments today were known in Greek times as the four humours, and medical science considered them of great importance. Knowledge of them has fallen into the background until Rudolf Steiner called attention to their importance in education. Temperament has nothing to do with character or morals but is in itself a basic quality—a substance as it were, though not material. A person will do things or react in a certain way according to his temperament quite irrespective of his or her upbringing, education, standards or knowledge. The four temperaments—melancholic, phle... View more info

ISBN: 0945803567


Of all subjects, geography perhaps lends itself best to awakening a feeling of social responsibility. By social responsibility, we mean the awareness of, and consideration for, other people and other modes of life. The earth is the living space and the workplace of all human beings. . . . Since we have a world economy, the use of the world's resources is everybody's business. Is it a pleasant thought that one in every three of the world's population is undernourished? There are diseases that are the concern of every nation. The whole question of pollution is now very much in the public mind. W... View more info
