Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

A theory in psychology proposed by Abraham Maslow in 1943 in his paper on ‘Theory of Human motivation’ it describes the way in which humans’ basic needs are supplanted by ‘higher needs’ once they have been satisfied. The four ‘lower needs’ are grouped under the term ‘deficiency needs’ and include physiological (e.g. eating, drinking, breathing etc), safety (e.g. physical security, employment, health etc), love and belonging (e.g. friendship and family), and esteem (e.g. respect, self-respect etc) needs. The ‘higher needs’ are also known as ‘growth needs’ and include self-actualisation (i.e. to strive to achieve) and self-transition (i.e. spiritual needs).
