Humanism and Individualism: Maslow and His Critics.
Pearson, Elaine M.; Podeschi, Ronald L.
Adult Education Quarterly, v50 n1 p41-55 Nov 1999
Explores the philosophical issue of the individual-society relationship through a focus on Maslow's humanistic psychology and its significant influence on adult education. Analyzes the conflicting viewpoints of Maslow and recent critics, particularly Marxist and postmodern scholars. Concludes that a humanistic perspective is possible, but individuals must acknowledge that it is "a" position, not "the" position. (Author/SK)
