Human Being and the Animal World, By Roy WilkinsonRudolf Steiner College Press
The period in the Steiner school known as The Human Being and the Animal World, is one of the most difficult from the teachers' point of view. In the first place, they must subscribe to, or at least be in sympathy with, the ideas on evolution propounded by Steiner. More than that, they must understand them and this understanding is not something that can be acquired the night before lessons are given, nor is it something that can be superficially communicated. It is not the purpose of this booklet to give the whole scientific-philosophical background to the subject. This must be sought in the recommended literature, but it is to be hoped that these few practical indications will be useful.
