The work of Abraham Maslow occupies a central position in popular psychology and is the foundation upon which humanistic management models were first developed. This third edition of the landmark book first published in 1962 describes Dr. Maslow's theories of self-actualization and the hierarchy of needs. Maslow holds that once basic needs such as food and shelter are met, people are capable of growing and reaching unprecedented levels of achievement and satisfaction. Featuring a new introduction and extensive new commentary throughout, this book enhances its subject's accessibility and provides a much broader context in which to place Maslow's highly influential thinking.
Third edition intended to bring Abraham Maslow's writings and ideas to a new generation of business and psychology readers. Maslow demonstrates that human beings can be loving, noble, and creative and evil behavior is a secondary reaction to frustration.
