This is a series of lectures by Maria Montessori given in the 1930's as war loomed on the European horizon. Montessori's thesis is as valid and important now as it was when the world was being sucked into the vortex of war. In these speeches she outlines the need to examine modern education processes which repress the individual by insisting on a narrow approach with narrow objectives. Montessori's method on the other hand aims at giving the individual opportunities to grow spiritually as well as emotionally, physically and intellectually. She supports the concept that human beings are our most valuable resource, and that civilisation is an evolving notion which requires our continued energy to maintain.
