Vol 3: The Formation of Man
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 is it 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.
What is the Montessori Method? If we were to eliminate not only the name "Method" but also its common conception, this would become much clearer. We must consider the human personality and not a method of education.
For the word "Method" we should substitute something like this: "Help given in order that the human personality may achieve its independence" or "means offered to deliver the personality from the oppression of age-old prejudices regarding education ".
