Dan McKanan’s long-awaited book about the Camphill Movement is now available online in print and as an Open Access publication.
Dan McKanan is the Emerson Senior Lecturer at the Harvard Divinity School and has been researching community movements using spiritual principles to promote social and societal causes for many years. In addition to several publications on the Camphill movement, his last book, Eco-Alchemy, dealt with the essential contribution of anthroposophy and biodynamic agriculture to the development of the ecological movement in the twentieth century.
His new book, Camphill and the Future – Spirituality and Disability in an Evolving Communal Movement, is based on an extensive study with numerous interviews and visits to the worldwide Camphill Movement, from which McKanan draws a picture of the development of this community impulse that focuses on the question of the future in a differentiated and insightful way. How could the development path continue? What role do generational changes, changing social conditions and the own development dynamics of a global spiritual and social movement play? The book is a gift for all who are interested in these questions.
