Abstract/Notes: Montessori argues here that movements considered solely from the point of view of a physiological fact do not really exist in life; all our movements have a purpose. The characteristics of the child, when he is left free to his own spontaneity, show that he is led by an inner force, which is an intellectual force, to perform various actions.

Abstract/Notes: In light of the fact that Maria Montessori had just had her two major books on the Psico approach published (Psicogeometria and Psicoaritmetica) and also completed her manuscript on a psychological approach to language (Psicogrammatica), this particular lecture on language is a powerful testimony to the psychological workings and how interest in language is sparked and developed. Montessori includes samples from very young children (1-2 years) to children of six to seven years, who traditionally were viewed as being “ready” to engage with language at an abstract level, via reading and writing. Again, in this lecture Montessori shows that it is the interest in letters, and hence writing, that precedes reading.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori describes to her students on this London course how she worked with young adolescents and 10-year-olds on a poem of Italy’s greatest poet Dante. The children became fascinated with the Divine Comedy in which the poet relates of his journey through the regions of the dead—Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. Such high and intricate literature is usually considered as far beyond young children. This poem of Dante is full of philosophy, full of references to historical events, but what the children felt was an utter communion with the spirit of the poem and the poet.
