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.

Mother, Melancholia, and Humor in Erik H. Erikson's Earliest Writings

Available from: Springer Link

Publication: Journal of Religion and Health, vol. 47, no. 3

Erik H. Erikson - Biographic sources

See More

Abstract/Notes: Erik H. Erikson wrote three articles when he was in his late-twenties and an up-and-coming member of the psychoanalytic community in Vienna. At the time he wrote these articles, he was in a training psychoanalysis with Anna Freud, teaching at the Heitzing School in Vienna, and learning the Montessori method of teaching. These articles focus on the loss of primary narcissism and the development of the superego (or punitive conscience) in early childhood, especially through the child’s conflict with maternal authority. They support the idea that melancholia, with its internalized rage against the mother, is the inevitable outcome of the loss of primary narcissism. I note, however, that the third of these articles makes a case for the restorative role of humor, especially when Freud’s view that humor is a function of the superego is taken into account.

Abstract/Notes: Maria Montessori’s works discussed in this chapter are, Education for a New World (1946), To Educate the Human Potential (1948), and The Formation of Man (1955). Like many of her texts, these publications are based on transcriptions of lectures held in various settings including teacher training courses. These three books were written during and after the tragic disruptions caused by WWII and were published first in India. They are among Montessori's last texts in which she highlights cosmic education and expresses her conviction of the need for a global reconstruction that must necessarily begin with childhood.
