Roy Wilkinson lays out an approach to the four essential personality tendencies of children during the early elementary grades. What we call "temperaments" today were known in Greek times as the "four humors," which medical science at the time considered very important. Knowledge of the temperaments has fallen into the background, but Rudolf Steiner pointed to their importance for educators. Temperament has nothing to do with character or morality, but is in itself a basic quality--a "substance" though not material. People act or react in a certain ways according to their temperaments, irrespective of her upbringing, education, social standing, moral standards, or knowledge. The four temperaments--melancholic, phlegmatic, sanguine, and choleric--are related to the four elements--earth, water, air, and fire. In this book, Roy Wilkinson offers practical applications of such insights for teachers, parents, caretakers, and classroom situations.

How can we better understand ourselves and others? The classical concept of the four temperaments - the four personality types characterized as the fiery choleric, the airy sanguine, the watery phlegmatic and the earthy melancholic - has been revered by many significant thinkers over the ages. In a refreshing treatment Dr Childs demonstrates how this ancient doctrine remains relevant to the present day. He shows us how we can recognize the temperaments in our fellow human beings as well as in ourselves, and how to understand their workings. A comprehension of their influence can boost personal development, as well as help improve interpersonal relationships. Conversational in tone and easily digestible, this book features fascinating discussions of the relationships between adults of various temperaments. Childs reviews matters of compatibility in partnership, family and workplace situations, liberally spicing his commentary with amusing examples of likely scenarios. He investigates the origins and manifestations of the temperaments in both their psychological and physiological aspects. There is also a section on the temperaments of children, with helpful and practical advice on dealing with individual issues. DR GILBERT CHILDS attended the Steiner teacher training course at Michael Hall after war service. He later studied at four universities, his doctoral thesis being entitled 'Steiner Education as Historical Necessity'. After teaching at State and Steiner schools he spent twenty years as a tutor in a further education college for severely physically disabled students. He is, in retirement, a full-time author and keen gardener. His published works include "Your Reincarnating Child" and "Truth, Beauty and Goodness".

"It is an almost universally accepted truth that a right education will secure virtue and power, and that virtue and power are the essentials of individual and national well-being. Education is then the supreme interest of the age. The proper interest in the cause of education is just beginning to be felt by all classes of people. It is because the principles which are presented in the following pages have been very helpful to me, and the hope that they may be so to others, that I present this volume to my fellow teachers. It has been prepared in the spirit of broadest liberality, appreciating the high aims and valuable thoughts of others. I have freely appropriated what I thought good from all sources; and I ask only the same from others--take the good and reject the spurious. The mental philosophy here employed is the system known as Phrenology. I have satisfied myself fully as to the correctness of its principles, and think that any one laying aside prejudice and investigating by observation will also be satisfied"--Preface.
