Helen and Penelope: Greek Mythology and the Drama of Human Development: The Trojan War and the Adventures of Odysseus 

Dr. Mees brings the mental pictures conjured forth from Greek mythology, especially from the Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer, to new life. The author examines these images as expressions of the development of consciousness within the evolving human being. This book is a necessity for background reading for Waldorf 5th and 10th class teachers as well as for all students and lovers of mythology.

About the Author

Leendert F. C. Mees, M.D. (1902–1990), was born in Amsterdam and studied medicine before becoming a student of the anthropologist Louis Bolk. At the time, he also met Rudolf Steiner and became a lifelong student of Anthroposophy. From 1930 on, he practiced general medicine in The Hague and was also a doctor and teacher at the Waldorf school there. In 1959, he and his wife established a clinic for artistic therapy in Dreibergen. In 1969, he began writing extensively and lecturing worldwide on medicine, evolution, education, and other topics.
