Abraham Maslow (1908 ? 1970) is a psychologist whose studies was very innovative and changed the way in which psychologists analyze the notion of human needs and expectations. He was not concerned with individuals with serious psychological problems. Instead, his investigations analyzed what he called ?exemplary people', mentally healthy human beings like Albert Einstein or Eleanor Roosevelt, and arrived to the conclusion that people experiment what he called ?peak experiences", stages in someone's life when they feel in harmony and their environment.

Maslow's influence extended beyond psychology, influencing theology (study of peak experiences), marketing (Maslow's theory is used to explain why customers purchase the items that meet their specific needs), international business (to understand the expectations of individuals from different countries) and organizational behavior (illustrating the role played by cultural differences among members of a multicultural workforce).
