In order to gain a deeper appreciation for what motivates human behavior, please familiarize yourself with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs on pages 144-145 of your e-Text. Please also visit the Required Resources tab which provides material that further discusses the origins of his theory and offers critiques.

Maslow theorized that human motivation could be depicted in a Hierarchy of Needs. He theorized that humans are first motivated by very basic physiological needs (such as food, water, sleep, and sex) and safety & security needs, before they are driven toward higher-level needs. Higher-level needs include the need for love & belonging, recognition, self-esteem, and self-actualization which is fulfilling one’s own unique potential. Please discuss your thoughts & reactions to Maslow’s Theory. (250 word min).
