Abstract/Notes: The paper examines the thought of Adele Costa Gnocchi, pupil and assistant of Maria Montessori. She spread in the world the Montessori pedagogical model of “support to a new life”. In addition to her more popular projects, as Montessori Children's Pre-school Assistant and Montessori Birth Center, in Rome, the paper describes the model of cosmic religiosity of Costa Gnocchi, at the base of her insights on “sacredness” of the birth and care of the child 0-3 years. The biographical and religious path of Costa Gnocchi, in some ways still obscure, is...

Abstract/Notes: Resumo A temática central deste artigo versa sobre o atendimento das Pessoas com Deficiência, busca-se deste modo inferir sobre algumas contribuições históricas a partir da pedagogia proposta por Paulo Freire e Maria Montessori. Apesar de em estudos preliminares Freire não ter tratado diretamente sobre o tema pessoa com deficiência, traz em suas obras um vasto material que dividiu barreiras entre a educação para poucos e a sua democratização. Freire (2013, p. 47) defende que a Educação é um processo em que o sujeito deve apreender através da sua vivência, não se evolui recebendo conhecimentos prontos, ou seja: “ensinar não é transferir conhecimentos, mas criar as possibilidades para a sua própria produção ou a sua construção”. Deste modo, permite-se estabelecer uma relação entre a pedagogia de Paulo Freire e a política educacional para as pessoas com deficiência, pois ambas desejam que todas as pessoas da sociedade tenham acesso à política de educação. Já a pedagogia proposta por Maria Montessori está inter-relacionada com a inclusão das pessoas com deficiência, uma vez que seus estudos inicialmente voltaram-se para a educação de crianças com deficiência intelectual.

Reluctant Genius: Alexander Graham Bell and the Passion for Invention

Abstract/Notes: The popular image of Alexander Graham Bell is that of an elderly American patriarch, memorable only for his paunch, his Santa Claus beard, and the invention of the telephone. In this magisterial reassessment based on thorough new research, acclaimed biographer Charlotte Gray reveals Bell’s wide-ranging passion for invention and delves into the private life that supported his genius. The child of a speech therapist and a deaf mother, and possessed of superbly acute hearing, Bell developed an early interest in sound. His understanding of how sound waves might relate to electrical waves enabled him to invent the “talking telegraph” be- fore his rivals, even as he undertook a tempestuous courtship of the woman who would become his wife and mainstay. In an intensely competitive age, Bell seemed to shun fame and fortune. Yet many of his innovations—electric heating, using light to transmit sound, electronic mail, composting toilets, the artificial lung—were far ahead of their time. His pioneering ideas about sound, flight, genetics, and even the engineering of complex structures such as stadium roofs still resonate today. This is an essential portrait of an American giant whose innovations revolutionized the modern world.

Abstract/Notes: Montessori's approach to psychoanalysis, particularly her contact with Freud, is analyzed. The subject is developed from a historical perspective, by tracing the direct and indirect influences between the two, and through the analysis of some Montessori's texts closer to psychoanalytic themes. It emerges that both are engaged in the work of “bringing out”, even with different motivations and outcomes, childhood in a new light. For this reason they were both considered uneasy in their time. Moreover, it is outlined that Montessori's relationship

Abstract/Notes: Focusing on Maria Montessori's efforts to obtain official endorsement and financial support from Pope Benedict XV, this essay analyzes the Italian educator's attempts to create an organization that would serve children distressed by war. Although such an organization was consistent with the initiatives promoted by the papacy during the First World War, the association Montessori envisioned was never created. Only one of the numerous letters and reports Montessori and her collaborators sent to the Pontiff actually reached him. This study...

Abstract/Notes: The study presents the life and work of Clara Grunwald and Maria Montessori, on the special background of the development of the Montessori movement in Berlin from the 1920s until the Nazis came to power in 1933 and their consequences. In this study, the effectiveness of Clara Grunwald for Montessori pedagogy in Germany, explicitly in Berlin during the Weimar Republic, is made clear. Here their intention, their influence and their commitment to the establishment of Montessori pedagogy and the development of the Montessori movement in Berlin are described. In addition, the emerging conflict between Maria Montessori and Clara Grunwald is viewed in several layers, as various factors influenced the development and spread of Montessori pedagogy. The conflict between the two women shows fateful effects on the person and work of Clara Grunwald, as well as on the Montessori movement in Berlin. The seizure of power by the National Socialists in 1933 also had serious effects on the work of Clara Grunwald and on Montessori pedagogy in Germany, which resulted in the decline of Montessori pedagogy. Against this historical background, the development of Montessori pedagogy after the end of the Second World War up to the present is examined and briefly outlined. (This is a published version of the author's thesis/dissertation.)

Abstract/Notes: This contribution has the intention to retrace, by letters and documents, a period of Maria Montessori's life, from 1910 to 1913. It was a short but a decisive period on a human and professional level, in which–after having had overcame many difficulties–she had abandoned the profession of doctor to embrace that of an educator; her Case dei Bambini and the scientific pedagogy method were affirmed; her son Mario, who had previously grown up with a nanny and then in a boarding school, finally went to live with her; and she had then...
