Abstract/Notes: The 1944 lectures in Colombo, hitherto unpublished, are a treasure trove of the principles of the human science on which education should be based. Maria Montessori explains the child’s powers and points out the inability of the adult to recognise the child’s inherent capabilities. She makes some significant observations of the assimilation of languages by children and offers constructive ways of supporting their process. Conversational in tone, but yet profoundly moving the analogies and anecdotes weave a coherent narrative of child development. The historical document reaches Dr. Montessori’s voice to students across the years and are a clear call to awareness of the child’s needs and the true nature of his budding personality.

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.

Erik H. Erikson - Biographic sources

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.
