“Social life is not sitting in a room together or living in a city. It does not regard social relations. The essence is that something is produced which is useful to the whole of society, and is changed for something else. Production and change, exchange, are the essence of social existence. It is a production and exchange which does not only bring in the people living near to one, but those far distant.”
Maria Montessori´s Third Lecture (Part I), given at the Montessori Congress in Oxford, 1936
