The Ecology of the Mind
Mazzetti, Luciano
NAMTA Journal, v38 n1 p243-248 Win 2013
Dr. Mazzetti's almost lyrical description of the role of encounters, both human and natural, suggests the terrible difficulty that would occur if the diversity of the natural environment, which is so essential to Montessori's prepared environment was lost. In principle, Dr. Mazzetti suggests that the child's encounter with the world needs deep exposure to a healthy natural world, spontaneous and purposeful, in order to make a contribution to saving the planet.
