One reason why parents do not realise what they are getting into when they choose a Steiner school is that many of the words used within the schools and within anthroposophy mean something completely different to what most people would assume.
We already touched on the confusion around “humanist” and how it means something different within Steiner.
Another word which has a different meaning to those outside is “materialist”. To those within Steiner this word means non-spiritual.
Anyway some more “doublespeak” was identified by Sharon Lombard in her very helpful article and I think it is useful to make a list, so we all know what we are talking about.
Psychic sight has been changed to imagination
The art of magic has been changed to Art
Sermon has been changed to lecture
Occultist has been changed to scientist
Prayer has been changed…
