Rudolf Steiner’s Observations on Adolescence

Adolescence, the period between fourteen and twenty-one years, is a challenging time for both parents and children. This comprehensive book contains a collection of helping and insightful comments and writings that Rudolf Steiner made about adolescence. The collection is wide-ranging and often demonstrates how Steiner approached the same topic from different perspectives. It includes Steiner’s thoughts on the seven to fourteen year phase leading up to adolescence.

About the Author

Rudolf Steiner (1861–1925) was born in the small village of Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia), where he grew up. As a young man, he lived in Weimar and Berlin, where he became a well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known especially for his work with Goethe’s scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings. The influence of Steiner’s multifaceted genius has led to innovative and holistic approaches in medicine, various therapies, philosophy, religious renewal, Waldorf education, education for special needs, threefold economics, biodynamic agriculture, Goethean science, architecture, and the arts of drama, speech, and eurythmy. In 1924, Rudolf Steiner founded the General Anthroposophical Society, which today has branches throughout the world. He died in Dornach, Switzerland.

David S. Mitchell has been a Waldorf teacher for thirty-six years.

He is an adjunct professor at Antioch College and has served as a leader in the Association of Waldorf Schools in North America in various capacities since the 1980s. In 1997, the Amgen Corporation selected him as one of the top two teachers in the state of Colorado.
