Amazon is refunding my money. I will purchase the John Wiley & Sons third edition, and be more careful to research book editions in the future. I gave it two stars in case these things don't matter to you.
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.
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.
