Tietoja tekijästä

In its first edition, Abraham Maslow's "Toward a Psychology of Being" (1962) sold more than 100,000 copies. Like R. D. Laing, Maslow questioned the old psychoanalytic notions of being well or ill "adjusted" to the world and spoke from a broadly human base. Human nature---the inner nature of every näytä lisää individual which is uniquely his or her own---"seems not to be . . . necessarily evil; . . . the basic human capacities are on their face either neutral, premoral or positively good." What we call evil behavior appears most often to be a secondary reaction to frustration of this intrinsic nature." On this foundation, Maslow built an affirmation of people and people's potentialities for self-fulfillment and psychological health. He considered his "humanistic" or "Eupsychian" approach to be part of the revolution then taking place in psychology, as in other fields, toward a new view of people. He saw people as sociable, creative, and loving beings whose welfare is not in the cure of "neurosis" or other ills, but on the development of their most socially and personally constructive potentials. Maslow was born in New York City and received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. He was chairman of the psychology department at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. He taught for 14 years at Brooklyn College, and was the president of the American Psychological Association from 1967 to 1968. His wife Bertha helped edit his journals and last papers after his death and assisted with a memorial volume about him. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

This foundational 1943 paper about human motivation and work deserves to be read in its original form, accessible here. Many textbooks provide a good summary of AH Maslow’s theory of human motivation around needs, but Maslow’s original work describes a more complex picture than the original. For example, he does not describe a linear progression as lower needs become met. Instead, he paints a picture where multiple motivations often play off each other, where higher motives mingle with lower motives.

This book is a short reprint of the original, seminal journal publication. Unfortunately, it has not been reformatted in any way, and the text is small. It really should be re-typed (or perhaps, scanned and edited) if the publishing contract would allow. The words are worth reading, and the original text should remain accessible for students in generations to come. I just wish the reading process of the physical product was more pleasurable.

Those in the working world – particularly those who teach or train, supervise, or aspire to supervise – can benefit from reading Maslow firsthand. It will provide concise understanding into human behavior, particularly around work, to a degree that few other texts can. That insight, in turn, can lead to wiser decisions and a more productive cadre of workers. This short text frankly contains worth far more value than any more accessible popular books on the same topic. All it takes is about one hour to read, but a lifetime to ponder.

Now that I've decided to try to 'review' each book that I have cataloged, there will be books( like this one) where I may recall reading it some years ago, may or may not remember how or why I liked it, but still can recall only a few or maybe no details about the experience.
