Psychogeometry

Maria Montessori - Writings

See More

Abstract/Notes: Psychogeometry demonstrates the originality and brilliance of Maria Montessori’s own mathematical talents, combined with her deep understanding of the psychological workings of the child’s mind. This enabled her to offer an approach to mathematics that is irresistible and fascinating. Psychogeometry also describes the surprising solutions and work that spontaneously pours forth from children once they have the necessary means. This edition is based on Montessori’s historical Italian manuscript and the 1934 Spanish edition, annotated by Professor Benedetto Scoppola. The original illustrations were recreated under the guidance of Professor Scoppola and Dr Kay Baker, who together also reviewed the English translation.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori lectured in Italian during the first International Montessori Course in 1939 at Madras, India. These 75 lectures were translated into English by her son Mario, as she spoke. And were taken down near verbatim in short hand, transcribed and set into galleys overnight. One such set of proofs forms the original manuscript for this book. For the most part, each chapter in this book encompasses a single lecture. The lectures are left in the same order as they were given, swinging between psychology and the use of the materials. India’s diversity of language, social custom and religious practice enriched her research. During this time, Dr. Montessori worked with children in Madras and put into practice her theories of adapting the environment, furniture and the Practical Life materials to local conditions. In these lectures, Maria Montessori speaks with the mature wisdom of a lifetime spent studying, not just early childhood, but human development as a whole and gives a complete, wonderful and colorful overview of her pedagogy and philosophy.
