    Martin, I just started your book, and was reminded of a change made in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Have you seen this change? I find it quite sinister. I found out about it on another blog here:

    Anyways, thought you might find it of interest. Let us know your thoughts, will you?

    Thanks, and regards,

    Brian L

      Hi, thank you for the information.

      They have “parenting” at the top of the pyramid. I acknowledge that it is a felt need for many people.

      For some people, perhaps more so women, this desire can be acute, to the extent that not having children makes them miserable.

      In this situation, having children may be the most ethical choice, because it will avoid a certain harm (to the parent), while only allowing for the possibility of a harm (to the child).

      While their assertion that parenting should occupy the top spot might be true for some people, I do not think it is true for most people.

      I suspect they have been influenced by evolutionary psychology, which views the world through a particular lens. Evolutionary psychologists tend not to do actual field studies to understand behaviors, because they already “know” why people do what they do, all they do is come up with a “just so” story and slap it on.

      🙂
