Steve Sagarin, waldorf teacher and blogger, has written an FAQ on waldorf critics. You’ll find it here.
Q. Why do they spend so much time and effort reading Steiner’s works–the only people who read nearly as much are anthroposophists themselves–only to criticize and debunk them?
A. I don’t know. This puzzles me, too. I think maybe, secretly, they love anthroposophy and even Waldorf education.
Read the rest of it, and discuss. If you like. Here or there.
No, personally I don’t actually love waldorf education. Remember, I had nine years of it, and, no, didn’t love it. Really didn’t. I can find a lot of interesting things about the subject and about anthroposophy, but that’s surely something else than loving the experience of this kind of education.
And — another, general observation. You can actually find a person, a movement, a phenomenon, et c, interesting without harbouring any feelings of love towards it. It is quite possible, and obviously not even unusual.
