Maintaining the Montessori Metaphor: What Every Child Wants and Needs.
Hilliard, Asa G.
NAMTA Journal, v21 n2 p108-25 Spr 1996
Describes the view of intelligence in Montessori education and dismisses a variety of limited and dehumanizing models of education. Refers to the Montessori model as a "human metaphor" that actually responds to who children are and what they need, and extends that metaphor to the world community at large, encompassing the author's spiritual aspirations for the entire human race.
