Physiognomy in the Light of Spiritual Science
A Study of Man for Teachers and Parents
A knowledge of physiognomy is essential for the understanding and education of the child.
– Rudolf Steiner
Thus opens Alan Whitehead’s fascinating exploration of realms of the human soul that are revealed in our faces. His intent is to increase adult understanding of who the children before us are – and with that understanding, to enable us to teach and raise them in the best way possible.
The author takes the reader on a journey through traditional and anthroposophical interpretations of face structure – a journey that will linger in the mind long after the last page is read. There is much to ponder here and no small amound of insight to be gleaned.
