Maria Montessori

During WWII Maria Montessori was required to stay in India, as she was an Italian citizen, until the conclusion of hostilities. She spent a great deal of time in the Aurobindo ashram and learned much about Indias culture and history. There was and is much to admire; however, there was a certain amount of shall we say arrogance in the locals attitude regarding the ancientness of their culture. posted by chittavrtti Location:Portland Sunday, January 22, 2006 7:28 PM 3 Comments
