The online portal to

Conductive Education

This site links you a wealth of online information on Conductive Education through a single click of the mouse or just one more, rarely through more than three clicks.

e-conduction is a knowledge portal opening on to what is knowable of Conductive Education available through the Internet and beyond, thousands and thousands of words: 

  • current news, newspapers and other news outlets, blogs, discussion (a little), politics
  • articles, books, dissertations and theses, library facilities,  research and evaluation
  • facts, information, views, comment, criticism, practical and academic materials, technical reports, conference papers
  • conductive pedagogy and conductive upbringing, conductor-training courses  
  • job adverts and where conductors are employed now
  • some history and geography, and lots more that is quite unclassifiable
  • new quotations every time that you log on to or refresh certain pages (from the CEP Quotationary)

e-conduction brings together materials from around the world. Most links are to materials in the English language – because in 2014 that is what the Internet is like – but other languages will be increasingly be found here as interest in Conductive Education spreads around the world.

Most of what you will find costs nothing to read, but expect to have to pay to see many articles published on line by academic journals. 

More materials of every kind are being slowly added to e-conduction. Not all the links in e-conduction are working at a given time. You are very welcome to question what you find here, or to suggest links to additional material.

Click below to enter e-conduction. The links that you find within will take you further, then it is up to you. The Internet is a jumble. Some of what is available on line is very good indeed, most of it is very enthusiastic but not very well informed. Some of it is really awful. Always read what you find critically. Always question what you read, and form your own opinions.

Quote of the day

I’m coming from a lower middle class family. My father was a storekeeper and post office director. My mother was an elementary school teacher before she got married. I disappointed a lot of people. Some expected me to become an excellent mathematician. Some envisioned me to become the next great poet of Hungary. Others thought of me as an emerging German-tongue poet-star. Some others thought I would become the star of pulmonology. Nonetheless, just to add insult to injury, I lived a life of adventure, misery and pleasure; I often had no idea how I was going to make a living. At times when ill-fate caught up with me I took up jobs as a physician at various pulmonology hospitals, physical therapy institutes, mental health hospitals. Later I became a medical science writer, an editor of a medical journal, and the director of a medical publisher. I was just starting a medical and science press company in Paris, France when the war broke out. A friend of mine and his wife asked me to come to Budapest, where I was driven into movement therapy. I became famous, and I paid income tax as a physiotherapy teacher. One of the fully recovered patients forced me into the College of Special Education, and that’s where ̶ after combatting a lot of difficulties ̶ the Institute started off. I had less and less time for my adventures with women, men and objects, and with life’s strange circumstances; I held myself to a strict daily and weekly routine. They tried to fire me from the Institute several times with great vigour, but I fought my battles and held on tight.
