Being Abraham Maslow

with Warren Bennis, 1968

In the past several years, I don’t know that I’ve viewed anything quite as compelling as this interview of Abraham H. Maslow. If I said I wasn’t absolutely enchanted with Abraham, the person, I’d be lying. Cant recommend this video enough.

Enjoy, Jim –the RFB

 

The film was made in 1968, after Maslow’s heart attack, and obviously prior to his death in 1970, and was remastered in black and white in 2007. The remarkable content, and the 1960s styling and production add to the seductive and powerful effect, which stems chiefly from Maslow’s brilliant thinking and natural charismatic presence.

Being Abraham Maslow is half an hour long, and features Maslow talking to Warren Bennis about his life, his views of the world and his work. It is utterly compelling and shows Maslow’s staggering perception of the issues which challenge society and humankind today – and this was recorded in 1968. The film, basically irresistible throughout, includes some marvelous moments, such as Maslow’s questioning observation as to “…how good a human nature does society permit?…”, and the visionary statement that: “…The Good Society now has to be one world – it has to be one world or it won’t work – nationalism is dead – it just doesn’t know it yet…”

He said this in 1968 and still today our leaders don’t see it.
