370            THE MONTESSORI METHOD
These are the first outlines of an experiment which shows a form of indirect discipline in which there is sub­stituted for the critical and sermonizing teacher a rational organisation of work and of liberty for the child. It involves a conception of life more usual in religious fields than in those of academic pedagogy, inasmuch as it has recourse to the spiritual energies of mankind, but it is founded on work and on liberty which are the two paths to all civic progress.
