Maria Montessori was an Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name, and her writing on scientific pedagogy. Her educational method is in use today in public and private schools throughout the world. In 1947 she returned to India and gave courses in Adyar and Ahmedabad. These courses led to the book The Absorbent Mind, in which Montessori described the development of the child from birth onwards and presented the concept of the Four Planes of Development.
A must read for everyone
This book opens a new perspective of vision, of life, of love. There’s spirituality, science, philosophy, education. Very interesting and powerful.
Very good book to read. Sheds new light on child care. I wish de other montessori written books like " the secret of childhood,1946 lectures, the discovery of the child" we're available online too.
Not the full book. Chapter 1, at least, has been edited or abridged.
