Abstract

Society focuses on the individual as a whole and from this point of view, it is similar to the features at the top of Maslow’s pyramid (self actualization). Once the physiological needs have been met (since food is no longer scarce due to the present financial conditions) and the safety needs (perhaps at the moment, these are being put to the test, but in a completely different view from the one Maslow hypothesized, considering the latest events linked to the terrorist attacks which are raging against the United States and Italy) self actualization is found at the higher levels of the pyramid. Reaching the top of the pyramid , man is self actualized . At this stage man should be able to find the right balance between his work and his private life so as to be satisfied with his role within this dual function. Our approach stems from this awareness, which places the self actualized individual as someone who is capable of having a balancing role in each fundamental facet of life: work and the family, a man who is fulfilled and not stressed, who knows how to balance his roles in different areas and at different moments in life.
