Description:     
An Anthroposophic Understanding of Imitation Processes

In this cogent work, Peter Selg describes the early stages of childhood from the perspectives of conventional scientific and spiritual-scientific—anthropological and anthroposophic—research with the purpose of encouraging a new educational attitude in working with young children. In his numerous references to early childhood development, this was Rudolf Steiner’s most important and urgent purpose.

Chapters:

The Incarnation Process in the First Seven Years

  1. The Imitation Process: “Like an Eye that Touches”
  2. The “Other” as Active Opposite Counterpart
  3. Education: The Challenge and the Approach

This book was originally published in German as Das Kind als Sinnes-Organ: Zum anthroposophischen Verständnis der Nachahmungsprozesse (Verlag des Ita Wegman Instituts, Arlesheim, Switzerland, 2015).
