Self-Esteem: Balance between Individual and Community.
Woods, Carol S.
Montessori Life, v11 n2 p38-40 Spr 1999
Differentiates self-esteem from narcissism and traces societal preoccupation with self-esteem. Maintains that placing so much importance on an individual and self-esteem obscures the value of a balance between individuality and mutual responsibility. Describes Montessori's emphasis on the child's inner development and on community and mutual responsibility; discusses the social and classroom implications of her approach. (KB)
