Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
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 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.

L. Michael Hall, Ph.D. author of "Self-Actualization Psychology"
The best way i can think of to describe this book is that it is life-affirming. By that, i mean that Maslow recognizes that we have legitimate needs that must be met in order to be a healthy, growing person - he affirms the legitimacy of these needs, that repressing them can lead to becoming neurotic but meeting them in a healthy manner can enable one to self-actualize. I've underlined something on just about every page. He affirms "that our deepest needs are not, in themselves, dangerous or evil or bad," (p. 122) which he compares with "a special tendency in Western culture...to assume that these instinctoid needs of the human being, his so-called animal nature, are bad or evil. As a consequence, many cultural institutions are set up for the express purpose of controlling, inhibiting, suppressing, and repressing this original nature of man," (p. 126). The book gives a good understanding of what it means "to become more fully human," (127). I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and felt like it was very therapeutic to do so.
pathology of the mind and rather reflects on our positives. Our ability to give love, support and nurturing and the positives of
steering away from either/or and having an attitude of that AND this. Suggesting that cooperation is infinitely better than the duality
that many of us practice. You will come away with a new way of looking at things and a refreshing look at new attitudes with whatever
you deal with. Relationships with others leads the pack.
