Maslow's hierarchy of human needs

Maslow's hierarchy of human needs, a term from sociology or social anthropology denoting the hierarchic hypothesis of Abraham Maslow of the basic needs of man. The first need is for air, food, and water; the second for safety, including protection and freedom from fear and anxiety. These are followed in order by the need to love and to be loved; the need for self-esteem; and ultimately, the need for self-actualization. The Maslow hypothesis states that the high needs, which are those at the end of the hierarchy, cannot be fully satisfied until the lower needs are met.
