Doctoral Dissertation

American Writings on Maria Montessori: An Inquiry into Changes in the Reception and Interpretations Given to Writings on Maria Montessori and Montessori Educational Ideas 1910-1915 and 1958-1970

Available from: ProQuest - Dissertations and Theses

See More

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this dissertation will be to survey and analyze American writings on Maria Montessori and her educational system, in order to show how the idea of Montessori education has interacted with some changing American ideas and social forces. These changes in social and intellectual currents can be likened to a shift from centrifugal to centripetal force; or to the expansion and then the contraction of a universe. The central metaphor is the same. It is applicable to, and illustrative of, much about the changing social and educational scene in America. The writings on Montessori, examined against this framework, should provide a new view on certain changes in American educational thinking.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s work discussed in the chapter, The Child, Society and The World – Unpublished Speeches and Writings, is based on her original speeches between 1930 and 1950. The writings cover a wide range of topics organized into six sections. Two sections speak directly to parents and teachers, urging them to respect children’s interests and occupations which allows them to build concentration and develop self-discipline. Another section considers diverse topics including social education, religious education, fantasy and fairy tales, and Montessori’s lesson on silence. The last section of the chapter outlines Montessori’s ultimate pedagogical aim: a new and better world achieved through the child based on what Montessori describes as cosmic education.

Abstract/Notes: This section includes a selection of Maria Montessori’s key writings that reflect the broad range of her body of work and that represent ideas that are fundamental for Montessori education today. Her writings are multifaceted and sometimes challenging for today’s readers because they contain philosophical expositions, almost arcane vocabulary, and even references to biblical texts. In this section, the chapter sequence is generally organized by year of first publication to follow the evolution of Montessori’s scholarly work.
