I am currently reading a little book called The Therapeutic Eye: How Rudolf Steiner Observed Children by Peter Selg. Only 88 pages but packed full. On the very first page this quote from Steiner jumped out at me (the chapter is entitled A Look Deepened By Love).
The first task to be achieved on the basis of anthroposophy in education can therefore be that, to begin with, the aim is to see that the teachers, the educators, are people who perceive the human being in the deepest sense and, having developed this attitude of genuinely observing the human being, approach the child with the love that results from such an attitude.I cannot imagine that that premise is being taught in mainstream teaching degrees. But just imagine if it was!!
Thank you, Rudolf Steiner!
