Description

Rudolf Steiner was an extraordinary genius, who made fundamental contributions in several fields, including education, agriculture, the arts, new social movements, medicine, and esoteric studies. Strangely, he remains almost unknown. His two best-known innovations are Waldorf education and biodynamics, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Explore new worlds: come meet Rudolf Steiner. The course will include guest lectures on Waldorf education, biodynamics, and the new art of movement that Steiner called eurythmy.

Course Requirements:

One short paper (5-10 pages) on any aspect of Steiner, and/or a take-home final. If both, your final grade will be the higher of the two.

Class Format:

As a Distance course, all aspects of this course will be fully compatible with remote online learning.

Learning Mode: This course will be asynchronous and will use canvas for all asynchronous online components.

Course Testing/Assessment: asynchronous
