Regarding Maslows hierarchy of needs.
« on: January 19, 2018, 06:42:57 pm »



I am thinking that maybe "a desire to help mankind" should be above self-actualization, or maybe replace the self-actualization category with "a desire to help mankind". What do you guys think?

I just ordered this book to learn more about this kind of humans:



Quote
During times of injustice, some individuals or groups courageously resist maltreatment of all people, regardless of backgrounds. Using various case studies, this book introduces readers to the broad spectrum of courageous resistance and provides a framework for analyzing the factors that motivate and sustain opposition to human rights violations.

I think it would fit within that, not above it.

Aim't desire to help mankind part of "social needs"?
The desire to see fairness is a social desire.

Social needs are much more rudimental. We all have social needs, while very few og us feel the desire to help mankind.  Most of us have enough with work, some entertainment in the evenings, and maybe some sport activities. Bill and Melinda Gates probably feel the desire to help mankind, since they made the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation which seems to be about helping mankind. People don't need to be as rich as them to feel this desire. For example, Maria Montessori probably felt such a desire when she invented Montessori education. Some of the people that work for free with helping the poor and discriminated might altso feel this desire.

Helping those in need is a pretty basic feeling for many.
If I see need, I try to help the ones concerned.

IMHO, that already is part of my social needs, and part of helping mankind.

I don't know. I think many people do such things more because they feel it is an obligation. For example. An individual started arguing to me that he already had done his share of activities to help mankind, and started giving me examples of what he had done. But he thought that since he had done so much already, he no longer needed to do such activities. This clearly shows me that he thought helping mankind was an obligation, rather than that it was something he desired.

This tendency to think we have an obligation to help mankind is especially common among religious people.

I just got this book in the mail:



If I like it, I am going to include it with the educational books for children from 18 to 21 years old.

I also see that they have a course about human rights at coursera, which I am definately  going to add: https://www.coursera.org/learn/humanrights

Also, one specificially about children's rights: https://www.coursera.org/learn/childrens-rights, and one specificially about women's rights: https://www.coursera.org/learn/womens-health-human-rights
