Reflections on Temperature-Warmth Course Lecture III
A small group in Christchurch, New Zealand, has been studying the Warmth course1. Two members of the group, of which I was one, realised that Steiner’s treatment of temperature lacks clarity and homogeneity. Both of us have a scientific training (i.e. mathematics and chemistry/physics) and are reasonably aware of the conventional view of temperature as a number. Incidently, we both realised that in previous readings of these lectures, we hadn’t noticed this very unconventional treatment of temperature. And the glaring contradiction in lecture 3.
