Renowned for his work on self-esteem and interpersonal relationships . Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

Abraham Harold Maslow (April 1, 1908[1] – June 8, 1970) was an American psychologist who was best known for creating Maslow's hierarchy of needs, a theory of psychological health predicated on fulfilling innate human needs in priority, culminating in self-actualization.
Maslow was a psychology professor at Alliant International University, Brandeis University, Brooklyn College, New School for Social Research, and Columbia University. He stressed the importance of focusing on the positive qualities in people, as opposed to treating them as a "bag of symptoms." A Review of General Psychology survey, published in 2002, ranked Maslow as the tenth most cited psychologist of the 20th century. . . . more . . Wikipedia® | and | Hierarchy of needs : the triangle.
