MASLOW’S NEED FOR CLASSIFICATION
As a research aide for Doctoral candidates I got caught up for a time in the sixties with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs which was in those early days a fairly new idea.
As an aide, my commitment was to the scholar I served and my guy at the time said “More Maslow”.
As a researcher with an eye to my own future I had a vision of helping would-be patients and troubled subjects to heal themselves. Maslow’s hierarchical bent apparently had little value to anyone but professional theorists and made self-help candidates dependent on the professional.
I need more time to write about this so by Monday, I expect to make some better.
If a reader has something to contribute, I’m interested.
