FRANZ SCHAFFHAUSER: BOOK ON CE

Previewed by citation in 
Italian journal article

An article was published a week ago in a journal called Journal of Sports Sciences and the Law. This is a free electronic journal published by the Faculty of Movement Sciences at the University of Palermo in Sicily, with some articles in English and others in Italian:

The article quotes from the two opening pages of a forthcoming book by Franz Schaffhauser, Rector of the Pető Institute in Budapest. Franz's book is to be called On the educational-philosophical foundations of conductive pedagogy. No further publication details are provided (indeed, it is not altogether clear from the article whether the book has or has not yet already appeared).

One can say nothing about Franz's book on this basis, but the Italian article offers a sort of perspective on CE unfamiliar in the English-speaking world. One will doubtless hear more.

Sicilian presentations

In 2012 two of the authors contributed presentations to an Italian ntional sports science congress physical education conference held that year in Palermo, Sicily, apparently in English:
  • Darius Costantino: 'Conductive pedagogy as educational action for young people and adults with motor disability'
  • Salvatore Costantino: 'Mária Hári and her conductive pedagogy'

At the end of December 2013 a brief PowerPoint presentation, 'Mária Hári and her conductive pedagogy' by Salvatore Costantino, was published on line. It looks like an abstract for a conference.

The third author, Antonio Palma, lectures in physical education at the University of Palermo. I can find no other publications or presentations of his on CE.

I wonder whether their involvement is widely known in Conductive Education.
