About the Author

Karl Koenig (1902-66) was well-known as a physician, author and lecturer. He began his work at the Institute of Embryology at the University of Vienna. In 1940 he founded the Camphill Movement in Scotland. Based on the educational ideas of Rudolf Steiner, the special education schools for children and villages for adults with special needs are now established all over Britain and Europe, North America and Southern Africa. He is the author of The First Three Years of the Child (Floris Books). Richard Steel, born 1952 in Oxford, England, completed the Camphill seminar for Curative Education at Foehrenbuhl at Bodensee (Lake Constance), Germany, in 1975. He lived and worked there with his family in one of the households for children with special needs. Since 2008, he has shared responsibility for Karl Koenig's estate and runs the Karl Koenig Archive in Berlin.

Reviews

'Readers will approach this book from their respective family positions, which in my case is the first of four. It was striking to see the first-born characterised as a defender of faith, tradition and the family against new ideas and action. Surely the balance is critical here.' -- David Lorimer, Scientific & Medical Network, Summer 2004 'For me the most telling aspect was how much Konig's descriptions of the first, second, third child and so on fitted so closely with characteristics we'd noticed in our children.' -- Education Otherwise 'A pleasure to read this important work again.' -- Camphill News NI 'a profound and insightful book' -- Perspectives
