Abstract/Notes: When this vision is opened up he will be fascinated to such an extent that he will value the cosmic laws and their correlation more than any simple fact. [...]the child will develop a kind of philosophy, which teaches him the unity of the universe. "If one day UNESCO resolved to involve children in the reconstruction of the world and building peace, if it chose to call on them, to discuss with them, and recognize the value of all the revelations they have for us, it would find them of immense help in infusing new life into this society which must be founded on the cooperation of all." In September 1898, she speaks at a national pedagogical conference, in Turin, Italy, and addresses the audience about a new way of teaching children who were previously thought to be unteachable. 1900-1902 In the year she turns 30, Montessori is appointed director of Rome's Orthophrenic School, a model school for training teachers of children with developmental disabilities. 1910 Two parallel teacher training courses are held in the Franciscan convent on Via Giusti in Rome, where there is a model Children's House.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s work discussed in the chapter, The Child, Society and The World – Unpublished Speeches and Writings, is based on her original speeches between 1930 and 1950.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.
