A pioneer in the field of curative education and the founder of the Camphill movement, Karl Konig here emphasizes the importance of understanding each individual child "through and through". "The point is not only to see the deviations, but to see them against the mighty backdrop of a comprehensive child anthropology". Konig's explanations are characterized by a profound, holistic understanding and love for the human beings in question. He is not satisfied with a description of physical disabilities and their classifications but proceeds to a deeper understanding of the personality as a whole, leading readers to see disabilities as meaningful ways of coping with living in a physical body in this world.
