“[Hermann von Baravalle’s] books have brought new life and creativity to the otherwise dry mathematics instruction; this first pedagogical work of his is filled with the vibrant experience of his own teaching practice. Every page bespeaks the love for his young students and their problems...” — Elisabeth Vreede, PhD

Rudolf Steiner said about this work of von Baravalle: “I  would like to encourage everyone who teaches drawing to thoroughly study von Baravalle's dissertation.... The material is also exceptionally important for those who teach aesthetics and handwork.... Above all, it is of fundamental significance for Waldorf teachers.” — Rudolf Steiner

Hermann von Baravalle

Hermann von Baravalle (1898–1973) taught mathematics and physics under Rudolf Steiner's guidance in the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart, Germany. He emigrated to the United States in 1937, where he traveled extensively and lectured on numerous subjects and helped establish several Waldorf schools.
