TDL117 Maslow: A Focus On Self
The Sunday Letters Podcast is the weekly audio newsletter from organisational psychologist Larry Maguire on the meaning & purpose of daily work and our paradoxical relationship with it. We explore how we may break free from tiresome means-to-an-end labour and take command of their own working lives. Topics include solo working, careers, entrepreneurship, small business economics, society and culture. Content follows the written newsletter, which goes out to subscribers every Sunday.
This morning I'm reading from the introduction to Abraham Maslow's book, Toward A Psychology of Being. In this excerpt he addresses his critics claims that through his theory of human motivation that he promotes selfishness, a focus on self to the detriment of the whole. He refutes this. I add my own commentary to the subject. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/sunday-letters/message
