Kaspar Hauser was a young man who appeared on the streets of Nuremberg in Germany in the early nineteenth century. His innocence and mysterious background captured the hearts of many at the time. 2012 marks the 200th anniversary of Kaspar Hauser's birth. This timely book draws together Karl Konig's thoughts on the enigma of Kaspar Hauser, as well as exploring Konig's deep connection to the young man. The book includes Konig's essay 'The Story of Kaspar Hauser', as well as essays from Peter Selg on 'Konig, Wegman and Kaspar Hauser' and Richard Steel on how Konig spoke of Kaspar Hauser in his diaries, notes and letters.
Karl Konig (1902-66) was well-known as a physician, author and lecturer. He began his work at the Institute of Embryology at the University of Vienna. In 1940 he founded the Camphill Movement in Scotland. Based on the educational ideas of Rudolf Steiner, these special education schools for children, and villages for adults with special needs, are now established all over Britain and Europe, North America and Southern Africa.
