No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This study examines the humanistic psychologies of Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers in mid-20th-century Western psychology. It also discusses the intellectual links between the common features of their psychological systems - the growth hypothesis and the holistic understanding of human nature which they inherited from Kurt Goldstein, and their views on ethics, education and the problem of method in the human sciences. The book argues that Maslow and Rogers established themselves at the forefront of those psychologists who rejected behaviourism and psychoanalysis, and so laid the groundwork for a humanistic alternative in American psychology.
