Title

Self-Actualization as a Developmental Structure

Description

The characteristics of self-actualization are fully reflected in excerpts from Saint-Exupery's autobiographical writings. The correspondence between the characteristics of self-actualization and Saint-Exupery's developmental profile gains special significance because there exists, independently, a theoretical structure corresponding both to self-actualization and to Saint-Exupery's material. This structure – level IV in the theory of positive disintegration – has previously been shown to represent Saint-Exupery's behavioral organization. The characteristics of self-actualization and the properties of level IV structure are isomorphic. Self-actualization is the consequence of level IV structure and of the potential necessary for its development.
