Zur Reformpädagogik: Maria Montessoris Beitrag zur Reformpädagogik wirkt nachhaltig bis in unsere Zeit; die Bedeutung ihres Werks ist unbestritten, und ihre Schriften sind nach wie vor aktuell. Mit der historisch-kritischen Ausgabe des erstmals 1909 erschienenen Werkes über "Die Methode der wissenschaftlichen Pädagogik angewandt auf die Erziehung des Kindes in den Kinderhäusern" eröffnet der Herder Verlag das ebenso beeindruckende wie ehrgeizige Projekt einer auf insgesamt über zwanzig Bände angelegten Studienausgabe sämtlicher von Maria Montessori publizierten Schriften sowie Teile ihres unveröffentlichten Werks. Die Gründe für diese wissenschaftliche Neuedition sind zahlreich und stichhaltig, und auch die dafür gewählte Form ist ebenso beeindruckend wie überzeugend: So beinhaltet der erste Band der Gesammelten Werke nicht nur den vollständigen Text der 1950 unter dem Titel "Die Entdeckung des Kindes" erschienenen fünften Auflage der erwähnten Veröffentlichung aus dem Jahre 1909, sondern darüber hinaus Anhänge mit zusammenhängenden Texten der Autorin aus früheren Auflagen, mit weiteren Texten der Ärztin und Pädagogin zur Thematik des Bandes sowie mit Personen- und Sachregistern, welche die Orientierung im umfangreichen Werk ermöglichen und erleichtern. -ntz.
