Ever since the Greek philosophers characterized the three foundational ideals for attaining wisdom -- Truth (science), Beauty (art) and Goodness (religion) -- these ideals have been significant influences on all levels of education. They are also the pillars of healthy development of body, soul and spirit.

This insightful book, drawing on lectures given by Dr Michaela Glöckler at the 2018 Kolisko conference, explores these themes and asks what the future looks like in the areas of education, the healing arts, and health care in light of them. How do goodness, beauty and truth acts as preventative medicine in society? And how can they be understood in the context of the Waldorf curriculum?


Dr Michaela Glöckler is a former head of the Medical Section at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland and an anthroposophical pediatrician. She is the author of many books on child health and development.
