Abraham Harold Maslow <<MAS loh>> (1908-1970) was an American psychologist. Many people consider him to be the founder of a movement called humanistic psychology. Humanistic psychologists believe that people are controlled by their own values and choices and not by the environment. Maslow stressed the importance of studying well-adjusted people in society instead of only disturbed people.
Maslow pointed out several levels of human needs. The most basic needs must be satisfied before moving to the next levels. The most basic needs are bodily drives, such as hunger and thirst. The next level includes the needs for safety and love. The highest level is the need for people to accomplish what they are capable of achieving. Maslow called this need self-actualization.
