Over the years of my life, through the different lifetimes that I have lived, freedom to me has been an ever changing obscurity, that as at times been elusive in its presence, and yet it’s absence un-noted or a silent drowning.
The philosopher Steiner asked us to consider what is freedom. Steiner considered fundamentally that freedom is about relationship, about how we know what we know. In considering the world as a living system of living systems, in ‘systems thinking’ in our organisations we instigate the philosophy of freedom in its most basic and purest sense. Is it that as Steiner believed of children, that in doing this we allow them to grow and reach their best potential, unhindered by predetermined restraints and controls?
