So the good civic-minded work of Americans later shows up as a Nazi horror. And "across the border fault" at around the same moment that the German eugenics crew comes to power, something that originated in Austria and Germany, the holistic human-science of Rudolf Steiner which is called "anthroposophy," show up in a new summer school in Rockland County, NY, on an early attempt at a biodynamic farm which is now Threefold Educational Center and several other impulses.
Dr. Dann doesn't moralize or make any dogmatic conclusions. He simply lays these two things side by side, both well meant, one which by drawing its conclusions from the physical scene became a misrepresentation of human and natural life, while the other, focusing on the intangibles of consciousness, seems to be enriching education, agriculture, and many other fields. But he doesn't draw these conclusions; in Jefferson's phrase he simply "informs our discretion."
