This is a great little book that helped me with my studies when I acquired the Early Childhood and Elementary Montessori certificates.
Montessori, Maria. The Formation of Man. The Montessori Series. Volume 3. Montessori-Pierson Publishing GmbH: Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 2017.
97 pages. Soft cover.
Summary on the back of the book:
“In the book The Formation of Man Montessori talks about the psychology of the child during the first four years of life, about the formation of the intelligence of a human personality, how it is formed, by means of what processes and in obedience to what laws? She considers the human personality and not a method of education. “Help given in order that the human personality may achieve its independence.” She considers the influence of the environment on the formation of the child, the unconscious mechanism of acquiring its culture and language, the building of its character and the role of the adult in the past and future. She discusses world illiteracy in relation to the alphabet and her method of teaching reading and writing.”
