Note: The inherent difficulties of live recordings and the age of some of the recordings can cause variations in the sound quality.
  • Psychology of Religious Awareness (1967)
    Live Recording - One Cassette
    In his study of self-actualized individuals, among those with a mission outside themselves Maslow found examples of states written about by great religious teachers and mystics. He speaks about integrating the spiritual search with everyday existence.

  • Reaches of Human Nature (1967)
    Live Recording - One Cassette
    Maslow speaks from the perspective of the 1960s where he sees a general revolution in every area of human life, like a "tree where the apples ripen all at once." This talk contains the seeds of his vision, as elaborated in the book, Farther Reaches of Human Nature.

  • Informal Weekend (1966)
    Live Recording - Four Cassettes
    "Education should help people toward being world citizens," says Maslow, in these passionate talks and dialogues about what it means to be fully human, about self-actualizing people, mystical and peak experiences, friendship and intimacy, education, and other pertinent issues of his life's work.

  • Criteria for Judging (1963)
    Live Recording - One Cassette
    "There is embedded in most discussions of instinctive needs the belief that our most primitive impulses are only greedy or evil, selfish or destructive: this is inaccurate." Maslow argues that neglecting these impulses causes psychological illness.

  • Maslow on Management (1998)
    Originally published as Eupsychian Management in 1965.

    The pioneer behind the hierarchy of needs and the concept of self-actualization, Dr. Abraham Maslow was-and is-one of the world's most esteemed experts on human behavior and motivation. However, while perhaps most famous for his work in the area of humanistic psychology, his legacy of work encompasses much more, extending into the realms of business and management. Having explored and studied the relationship between human behavior and the work situation, Maslow translated the science of the mind into the art of management=an important interpretation first published in the far-sighted treatise, Eupsychian Management, and whose impact continues to be felt today. Now, this seminal work has been updated, primed to introduce new readers to-and reacquaint old admirers with-what some have called the renowned psychologist's best book.

    Bringing into perspective the lasting impact of Maslow's groundbreaking principles, Maslow on Management illustrates how they have withstood the test of time to become integral components of current management practices, such as continuous improvement, Theory X, and empowerment. Offering insight into using these and other tools to effectively tackle present-day business situations, from heightened competitiveness to globalization to emerging technologies, Maslow on Management covers a wealth of timeless topics, including:
    * Self-actualization-the freedom to effectuate one's own ideas, try things out, make decisions, and make mistakes
    * Synergy-what is beneficial for the individual is beneficial for everyone; individual success should not occur at the expense of others; align organizational goals with personal goals
    * Enlightened management policy-assume that all your people have the impulse to achieve; everyone prefers to be a prime mover rather than a passive helper; everyone wants to feel important, needed, useful, successful, and proud; there is no dominance-subordination hierarchy.

    To complement Dr. Maslow's original writings and to demonstrate how his forward-thinking ideas are being played out in today's business world, Maslow on Management features interviews with Perot Systems Chairman Mort Meyerson, Non-Linear Systems founder Andrew Kay, Esalen Institute founder Michael Murphy, and other prominent figures who provide incisive commentary on subjects ranging from creativity in business to leadership lessons for the digital age.

    Epitomizing the genius of its author and embodying his elegant ruminations, Maslow on Management is still as important as it was when it first appeared. A true classic, this is essential reading for all managers.

  • Motivation and Personality (1987)

  • The Farther Reaches of Human Nature  (1971, 1993)

  • Toward a Psychology of Being (1968)
    Abraham Maslow's theories of self-actualization and the hierarchy of human needs are the cornerstone of modern humanistic psychology, and no book so well epitomizes those ideas as his classic Toward a Psychology of Being.

    A profound book, an exciting book, its influence continues to spread, more than a quarter century after its author's death, beyond psychology and throughout the humanities, social theory, and business management theory.

    Of course, the book's enduring popularity stems from the important questions it raises and the answers it provides concerning what is fundamental to human nature and psychological well-being, and what is needed to promote, maintain, and restore mental and emotional well-being. But its success also has to do with Maslow's unique ability to convey difficult philosophical concepts with passion, precision, and astonishing clarity, and, through the power of his words, to ignite in readers a sense of creative joy and wholeness toward which we, as beings capable of self-actualization, strive.

  • Psychology of Science: A Reconnaissance (1966, 2002)
    A fascinating glimpse of what science and medicine might be like if we could work to "re-humanize" them. Maslow contrasts humanistic science with value-free, orthodox science, and offers a new knowledge paradigm to replace classical "scientific objectivity".

  • Religions, Values, and Peak Experiences (1964)

  • Was Adler a Sisciple of Freud?: A Note (1962)

  • New Knowledge in Human Values (1959, 1977)

  • Emotional Blocks to Creativity (1957)

  • Motivation and Personality: A General Theory of Human Motivation Based Upon a Synthesis Primarily of holistic .....  (1954, 1970)

  • Principles of Abnormal Psychology: The Dynamics of Psychic Illness (1951)

  • Comparative Approach to the Problem of Destructivenes (1942)

  • The Maslow Business Reader (2000), Deborah C. Stephens, ed.
    In a world in which each new day brings a new management theory or strategic proposition, the timeless ideas of Abraham Maslow resonate with unimpeachable insight and clarity. Dr. Maslow, the pioneer behind elemental concepts including the hierarchy of needs and the human search for self-actualization, innately understood that the goals and passions that so impact humans in their everyday life could be just as applicable-and his own findings just as valuable-in the work environment.

    The Maslow Business Reader collects Maslow's essays and letters for his many devoted adherents, and introduces his published and unpublished works to readers unfamiliar with Maslow's management breakthroughs. From recognizing and warning against management's natural progression to mechanize the human organization to brilliant discussions of human motivation, Dr. Maslow never fails to instantly recognize the heart and soul of each matter and provide direct, across-the-board solutions.

    Abraham Maslow's contributions to behavioral science shine on every page. In notes and articles, as well as personal letters to icons B. F. Skinner, John D. Rockefeller II, and others, The Maslow Business Reader provides his outlook on:

    • Management and leadership issues such as customer loyalty, entrepreneurship, and the importance of communication

    • Ways to build a work environment conducive to creativity, innovation, and maximized individual contributions

    • Techniques for finding comfort in change and ambiguity, and using them to spur creativity and innovation

    Amid today's impressive technological innovations, business leaders sometimes forget that work is-at its core-a fundamental human endeavor. The Maslow Business Reader reminds us of Dr. Abraham Maslow's towering contribution to the understanding of human behavior and motivation, and how his efforts can lead to a greater understanding of the twenty-first-century workplace-and the workers who call it home.

    An important analysis of workplace motivation-from the twentieth century's most influential behavioral expert .

    Abraham Maslow is renowned-and rightfully so-for his pioneering work on the hierarchy of needs and the human drive for self-actualization. As today's worker increasingly equates professional success with personal satisfaction and fulfillment, Dr. Maslow's words and ideas have become recognized for their wisdom and prescience on performance improvement and management/employee relationships.

    The Maslow Business Reader collects Abraham Maslow's most instructive, intuitive thoughts and essays into one important volume. Assembled from the wealth of behavioral research and analysis Dr. Maslow left upon his death in 1970, the enclosed selections reveal a man comfortable with his position in history, tireless in his efforts to better understand what truly makes humans strive to reach their potential, and gifted in his ability to translate the most profound concepts and realities into entertaining, thought-provoking prose.

    Abraham Maslow is still regarded as the modern world's most articulate, insightful authority on human behavior and motivation. Discover his beliefs and conclusions on worker drives and motivations-as applicable today as when they were first written-in The Maslow Business Reader.

  • Future Visions: The Unpublished Papers of Abraham Maslow (1996), Edward Hoffman, ed.
    One of the founders of humanistic psychology, Abraham Maslow spent a lifetime developing theories that shaped not only psychology but counseling, education, social work, theology, marketing, and management as well. Indicative of his influence, Maslow's ideas on human behavior and motivation have become a part of public consciousness. At the time of his death 25 years ago, he left a vast collection of articles, essays, and letters intended for publication. Now, noted Maslow biographer and award-winning author Edward Hoffman has compiled the most compelling of these writings into one volume. In an array of letters, working papers, lectures, and journal entries, Maslow shares his thoughts on topics that range from self-actualization and well-being to American politics and organizational management. Hoffman provides helpful introductions to Maslow's life and work, as well as to each writing, and a handy glossary of terms used by Maslow. Both scholars and students of personality, counseling, and humanistic psychology--as well as management, education, and social work--will discover new insights into Abraham Maslow's influential work through this important book.

  • New Pathways in Psychology: Maslow and the Post-Freud (2007) by Colin Wilson
    Written with the "active and detailed cooperation of Abraham Maslow". Maslow and Wilson were friends and correspondents during the 1960s, and Maslow worked together with Wilson to create this excellent study of Maslovian Psychology. New Pathways first reviews the history of psychology, providing a much-needed context for understanding the revolutionary nature of Maslow's "Third Force" movement. Wilson then brings Maslow's work to life by focusing on the practical applications of Maslow's theories. Highly recommended for advanced students and researchers who wish to understand the complexities of human motivation and consciousness.

  • Peak Experiences: Walking Meditations on Literature, Nature, and Need (2003) by Ian Marshall
    Nature's ability to satisfy deep human needs is familiar to anyone who has hiked up a mountain, canoed a river, or hung a bird feeder outside the kitchen window. In Story Line, his groundbreaking work of narrative ecocriticism, Ian Marshall explores how natural surroundings inspired works of literature set along the Appalachian Trail. In his new work, Peak Experiences, Marshall sets out on a far more personal and at the same time far-reaching journey, to discover how our modern estrangement from the natural world has affected our mental well-being.

    Taking as his starting point the psychologist Abraham Maslow's "hierarchy of human needs"--a pyramid familiar to anyone who ever cracked a textbook for Psych 101--Marshall asks how his own experience of deep satisfaction in nature may or may not fit Maslow's theory. In chapters focused on the needs identified by Maslow, Marshall finds evidence for the healing power of nature in literature and in his own experiences in the wild.

    "I offer myself as test subject," Marshall writes: "recently divorced, a father sharing custody of two children, someone with a high regard for the written word, . . . a little too stressed-out these days, no more self-actualized than the next person but just as curious about it--and what I have going for me are a lot of well-read books, a good pair of broken-in hiking boots, and a thing for mountains."

    Embracing the exciting new field of ecopsychology, Marshall leads us on a personal and intellectual odyssey, from the dream mountain of Henry David Thoreau to the high slopes of John Muir's beloved Mount Shasta. Always, Marshall returns to his own challenges as father and reader, and to his own humble but rewarding mountain, Bald Eagle Ridge, in the Pennsylvania countryside outside his back door.

  • The Highway to Heaven: A Maslow Critique (19999) by David G. Thom

  • The Concept of Personality in Sri Aurobindo's Integral Yoga Psychology and A. Maslow's Humanistic/Transpersonal Psychology (1995) by Joseph Vrinte

  • Self-fulfillment: A Starting Point (1992) by Helen Crary Stassen

  • To Be Human (1992) by Xavier O. Monasterio
    To Be Human's central theme is the identity of the human being. It is underpinned by the conviction that philosophy is a practical, not theoretical, discipline; philosophizing is a human endeavor in which one seeks to find a philosophy which satisfies one's critical sense after careful personal reflection. This work endeavors to engage college students in the reflective process required to attain that end. "To Be Human" presents the students with the theories of four different contemporary philosophers: Skinner, Sartre, Marx, and Maslow. Aldous Huxley's novel "Brave New World" is used throughout the book both as a means of making palpable that different philosophies have different and very practical consequences, and as a means of furnishing the student with a concrete model to start testing the validity of the particular philosophy he or she feels tempted to adopt. Reprinted from the 1985 Paulist Press edition.

  • The Founders of Humanistic Psychology (1991) by Roy Jose DeCarvalho
    This intellectual history narrates the institutionalization of the humanistic current in American psychology and places the thinking of five of its founders (Gordon Allport, Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers, Rollo May, and James Bugental) in the context of twentieth century psychology. The Founders of Humanistic Psychology is the first historical and systematic presentation of humanistic psychology. It is also the only study that treats these five thinkers as a unit and places them in the context of history and systems of Western psychology.

    Roy Jose DeCarvalho begins with a discussion of the political institutions that brought this movement together: research facilities, grants, and intellectual stimulation via seminars, conferences, and journals. The text then introduces the biographies of Allport, Maslow, Rogers, May, and Bugental. Following chapters detail the shared views of these five founders with emphasis on the philosophical encounter of humanistic psychology with behaviorism, psychoanalysis, and existentialism.

    DeCarvalho also examines the impact that the neo-Freudians, Kurt Goldstein, and personality and Gestalt psychologies had on the conceptualization of their humanistic psychology. The methodology, views on human nature, and the ethics of humanistic psychology are also discussed. Ending with a chronological bibliography of each founder of the movement, this book is a valuable research tool for humanistic psychologists, as well as graduate and undergraduate students. Social workers and psychologists, as well as historians and philosophers of the social sciences, will also find this an indispensible source of information about the rise of the humanistic movement.

  • Humanistic Psychology: Conversations With Abraham Maslow, Gardner Murphy, Carl Rogers (1989) by Willard B. Frick

  • The Right to Be Human: A Biography of Abraham Maslow (1988) by Edward Hoffman
    Why have almost all of today's most celebrated marketing wizards made it their business to know about this man and examine his ideas? Why does virtually every serious management book recognize, document, and praise his insights? How do his life and his legacy continue to inspire and inform the visions of today's most alert and innovative entrepreneurs? Why is global interest now mounting in his multifaceted work?

    Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) pioneered revolutionary ideas that helped form modern psychology and laid the cornerstones of contemporary marketing, motivation, self-actualization, and management trends. Critically acclaimed in its first edition and now revised and updated for this paperback edition, The Right to Be Human is a fascinating portrait of one of the seminal thinkers of the twentieth century--at once a vivid biography of a truly original personality and an intellectual journey to the very source of how we think about and manage our businesses today.
