This project is based on earlier studies and follows on from them. So far the main aim has been to complete the editions of Montessori’s main works, which have been revised according to academic standards, by editing smaller works that have not been published yet or are not available any more and by correcting older and faulty texts. At the same time, a broader and better basis for further research on Montessori’s work was to be established. During the time the University of Münster published the latest research report, a comprehensive new edition of Maria Montessori’s work in the German language according to academic standards was in the planning stage. Translations and scholarly commentaries of Montessori’s works in Dutch and Italian which have not yet been published in German have been in preparation. Some smaller texts have been published. The project is now being continued on a more expanded basis in co-operation with academics from other universities in Germany.
