Abraham Maslow and the pyramid that beguiled business
In this article by William Kremer and Claudia Hammond of the BBC give and a different approach to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. At first, they do go in-depth to explain what the hierarchy is and how it is broken down into various levels, also how it has played a role in the workforce since it was published in 1943, and the positive and negative effects of it in the workforce. Also the article explains how After Maslows’ death his theory was put to the test in field studies to test the hierarchy needs (Kremer et al., 2013). Since then his theory has been broken down and completely re-thought and in one case even re-categorized into only three parts Existence, relatedness, and growth.

Rethinking the Place of Love Needs in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
This Article analyzes and rearranges the place of the “love need” on Maslow’s hierarchy pyramid. The author gives a well-explained version on why the “love need” places a large level of importance and need to be included in the basic needs category, or even then before those needs. He also gives a time span tracing back millennia on how we humans even though lacking in what we consider survival needs, the lack of love is the true need that all of us as humans crave and is essential feeling we thirst for, long before we may seek shelter or food. Also his defining point in his theory, he points out that people go to great lengths to risking their lives in order to save loved ones’. This human selflessness shows the power of love (Oved, Or., 2017).
