Passionate Schooling
Passionate SchoolingDr Alduino Mazzone

A Passionate Schooling provides a clear, scholarly overview of the key ideas behind Steiner Waldorf education. It examines how Rudolf Steiner developed his ideas in the context of his life and the culture in which he lived. A Passionate Schooling focuses on Steiner's insights as they relate to: - the nature of the human being; - freedom and the ideals of education and social renewal; - new perspectives on child development; - the evolution of consciousness, - and the transformation of the self. It also explores the concepts of goodness, beauty and truth as ideals in education, as well as the adaptability of the Steiner Curriculum. It re-interprets Steiner's ideas in the context of post-modernist thought and contemporary challenges and practices. A Passionate Schooling is a revealing text for students of education, teachers and parents.

A noted educator writes: in this short, simply written and transparent text, Alduino Mazzone elucidates the essentials of Rudolf Steiner's thinking as it relates to Steiner Waldorf education.

It is as notable for its clarity and precision as Steiner's own voluminous writing is for its complexity and at times almost impenetrable density. Yet he does not over simplify or talk down to his readers. He seeks for the essence and succeeds so often in finding it. And he does not make a fundamentalist reading. Rather does he nuance his reframe to take account of the rich supporting work of scientific and mystical thinkers since Steiner's time, further personalised through his unique teaching experience.

The work is refreshingly devoid of propaganda and spin. He has delved deeply into Steiner's world, and has emerged with a simple clarity that is testament to the integrity of his own soul and spirit.
