Toward a Psychology of Being
"Like few contemporary psychologists, Abraham Maslow has no answers, no absolutes, no solutions which bring the relief of finality. In this Second Edition of Toward a Psychology of Being, there is a constant optimistic thrust toward a future based on the intrinsic values of humanity. He demonstrates that human beings can be loving, noble, and creative, and are capable of pursuing the highest values and aspirations."--Back cover.
