Book Description

28 Sep 2013
The present paper is an attempt to formulate a positive theory of motivation which will satisfy these theoretical demands and at the same time conform to the known facts, clinical and observational as well as experimental. It derives most directly, however, from clinical experience. This theory is, I think, in the functionalist tradition of James and Dewey, and is fused with the holism of Wertheimer, Goldstein, and Gestalt Psychology, and with the dynamicism of Freud and Adler. This fusion or synthesis may arbitrarily be called a 'general-dynamic' theory. It is far easier to perceive and to criticize the aspects in motivation theory than to remedy them. Mostly this is because of the very serious lack of sound data in this area. I conceive this lack of sound facts to be due primarily to the absence of a valid theory of motivation. The present theory then must be considered to be a suggested program or framework for future research and must stand or fall, not so much on facts available or evidence presented, as upon researches to be done, researches suggested perhaps, by the questions raised in this paper.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original Hierarchy of Needs paper 25 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maslow's original paper, later expanded on, however provides a good brief overview of the basic theory central to much of social behavioural theory. Written in a fairly accessible way for the non theorist.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is what it is 3 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this as Im a student counsellor and it was part of our curriculum. Cant say its a riveting read but essential reading if you are on the path of humanistic therapy and human development theories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read The Original Before Making Up Your Mind 20 Jun 2014
By Sohnee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too much information on the "pyramid of motivation" misses important details that are actually present in Maslow's book. When I read this book it answered many of the questions I had. A surprisingly easy read too.
