Knowledge, Teaching, and the Death of the Mysterious: Thoughts on keeping learning alive

“The finest thing we can experience is the mysterious.” —Albert Einstein

These lectures address learning during the periods of life from birth to adulthood, with illustrations from physiology and psychology to form pictures of the teaching and learning tasks and concerns appropriate for each stage, or age group.

Contemporary education often tries to “solve” the mysterious aspects of nature through the proper application of information. This tends to diminish awe and wonder in the students’ souls. By contrast, Waldorf methodology is designed to help students penetrate life’s mysteries while retaining intact the human experience of the mysterious.

The primary focus of this work is to integrate sensory experience and cognitive insights in rhythmic ways that are appropriate to specific ages and each student’s developmental skills. The final lecture discusses the development of one’s Heart-eye.
