Abstract/Notes: Cet article vise à restituer le rôle joué par la Società Umanitaria (Société Humanitaire), basée à Milan, pour la diffusion de la Méthode Montessori. La période étudiée s'étend de 1908, année où l'Union des femmes se fait intermédiaire en vue de la création des premières Maisons d'enfants dans le quartier de la via Solari, jusqu'à 1923, année de la mort d'Augusto Osimo, secrétaire général de cette institution. À travers l'analyse des échanges épistolaires entre Maria Montessori et Augusto Osimo, l’auteure reconstruit la trame complexe d'une fructueuse collaboration qui s'est concrétisée avec l’organisation de cours de formation à la méthode Montessori par la Società Umanitaria. Leur collaboration s’est par la suite de nouveau manifestée autour d'une cause commune, à savoir l'intervention en faveur des enfants victimes de la guerre. / This article aims to reconstruct the role played by the Società Umanitaria (Humanitarian Society), based in Milan, in spreading the Montessori method.

Abstract/Notes: The main thesis deals with the educational theories of Rudolf Steiner. These theories are dealt with in Parts III to VIII of the thesis. Before this, in Part 1, there occurs a brief description of the background and life of Steiner; and, in Part II, a,, philosophical discussion of the basic tenets and assumptions upon which Steiner's educational theories rest. The areas dealt with in Parts III to VIII are divided into three. The first is an exposition of Steiner's ideas; the second is a comparison and appraisal of Steiner's theories with other educationalists; the third is an examination and evaluation of some of the concepts which are fundamental to Steiner's theories. The first of these areas i. e. the exposition of Steiner's ideas, is subdivided into three: his views on the nature of the child and the'way in which the child grows and develops; methodologies of teaching; and content and curriculum. An exposition of Steiner's theories on the nature of the child and its development occurs in Part III. - This is followed, in Part IV, by an evaluation of his theories by comparing them with other educationaliits. In Part V an examination of Steiner's theories on methodologies of teaching, by considering his views of "The Temperaments", occurs; - reference and comparisons to other educationalists are made in the same section. In. Part VI descriptions of the Waldorf curriculum are given and this is followed by an evaluation at the end of the section. The evaluation examines 'a number of concepts upon which the Waldorf curriculum has bpen formulated in the context of modern day curriculum objectives, design and learning experiences. In Part VII a brief historical perspective : is obtained of Steiner's theories by comparing his views with those of Plato, Rousseau and Montessori. This perspective is placed in a modern day context in Part VIII, and is obtained by an examination of many of the concepts fundamental to Steiner's theories. This includes a detailed critique of two of the main assumptions upon which Steiner's theories of education rest; an examination of the relationship of the individual to society in an educational context; and a discussion of the nature and aims of the educational process.
