Dear Group: A very good term, I think, "fraudulent thinker." I am always
dissappointed when the ideas of Alfred Adler's Individual Psychology
(individu um means "that which cannot be divided") are "stolen" (by people
like Covey, Senge, and others) without credit to him. To live well within
ourselves, I think it is good to be humble enough to state that we are
currently seeing the world as if, I think Albert Einstein said, "...on the
shoulders of giants." And yes, I agree, that Maslow's book is a rich
source of ideas that apply today and will in the future. Warm regards,
