Montessori Education from the Viewpoint of Analytical Psychology.
Short, Susanne
Two disciplines, Montessori education and Jungian psychoanalysis, are connected by comparing the lives of Maria Montessori and C.G. Jung and their early professional and philosophical influences. The historical associations of the Montessori philosophy dating from the 1920's and 1930's are described, including the development of Montessori's views from the early theories of Jung and Freud. Specific psychoanalytic concepts of Montessori and Jung are compared and contrasted: namely, the ideas of the archetypes, the spiritual embryo, and sensitive periods. The author's personal experience with putting these ideas to work in the classroom or the psychological consulting room, based on her training as a Montessori teacher and a Jungian analyst, are described.
