Publisher's Summary

This is the article in which Maslow first presented his hierarchy of needs. It was first printed in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation". Maslow subsequently extended the idea to include his observations of humans' innate curiosity. His theories parallel many other theories of human developmental psychology, some of which focus on describing the stages of growth in humans. Maslow described various needs and used the terms Physiological, Safety, Belongingness and Love, Esteem, Self-Actualization, and Self-Transcendence" to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through. Maslow studied what he called exemplary people such as Albert Einstein, Jane Addams, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Frederick Douglass rather than mentally ill or neurotic people.

Errors in recording

Some parts of the recording repeat themselves and I assume were intended to be removed in editing. Not enough too bad though.

Famous paper, finer points often misunderstood.
The paper was well read and very interesting. Will probably listen to it again.
