Maslow hopes to transform the personality of the orthodox scientist, using selected tools of psychoanalysis, in order (i) to enhance the knowledge of the external world (to improve science), and (ii) to include the knowledge of the internal world into the scientific purview (to expand science). There are many fine thoughts and ideas, but one wonders about whether these thoughts and ideas can be put to work in any systematic or institutionalised way.
