The New Science of Self-Actualization
Scott Barry Kaufman

When psychologist, Scott Barry Kaufman, first discovered Maslow's unfinished theory of transcendence, sprinkled throughout a cache of unpublished journals, lectures and essays, he felt a deep resonance with his own work and life. In this ground-breaking book, Kaufman picks up where Maslow left off, unravelling the mysteries of his unfinished theory and integrating these ideas with the latest research on attachment, connection, creativity, love, purpose and other building blocks of a life well lived.

Kaufman's new hierarchy of needs provides a route to finding purpose and fulfilment - not by striving for money, success or “happiness,” but by becoming the best version of ourselves or what Maslow called self-actualisation. While self-actualisation is often thought of as a purely individual pursuit, Maslow believed that the full realisation of potential requires a merging between self and the world. We don't have to choose either self-development or self-sacrifice, but at the highest level of human potential we show a deep integration of both. TRANSCEND reveals this level of human potential that connects us not only to our highest creative potential, but, also, to one another.

With never-before-published insights and new research findings, along with exercises and opportunities to gain insight into your own unique personality, this empowering book is a manual for self-analysis and nurturing a deeper connection, not only with our highest potential, but, also, with the rest of humanity.
