Joan Bardina Studies Center.

The name of our centre was inspired by the eminent pedagogue and scholar Joan Bardina I Castarà (Sant Boi de Llobregat, 1877-Valparaiso, 1950) who, apart from proposing a revolutionary pedagogical model in Catalonia at the beginning of the Twentieth Century, was an important investigator who suggested new social, economic, and political alternatives.

The Joan Bardina Studies Center is a not-for-profit organisation created in 1984 with the purpose of developing --after Joan Bardina suggestions-- studies and proposals that may contribute to design new models of solidarity and living together.

Money transparent.

Reckoning Before Writing.
Denise Schmandt-Besserat.

The tokens from Tepe Asiab may be considered an elaboration of a system of counting based on pebbles. The novelty was to use clay for the manufacture of the counters, permitting one to model the tokens into various shapes and to assign each form a particular meaning. Thus, the counters became a more previse memory aid since not only conferred the quantity but also the specific nature of the commodities recorded.
