Steiner Doublespeak

Stop Steiner in Stroud

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.

In Steiner;

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…
