Summary
Based on the lectures given by Dr. Maria maria Montessori at Ahmedabad, during the first training course to be held after her internment in India, which lasted till the end of World War 2. In it she illustrated the unique mental powers of the young child which enable him to construct and firmly establish within but a few years- without teachers, without any of the usual aids of education, nay almost abandoned and often obstructed all the characteristics of the human personality
