Undermine holism as a philosophical position and the central assumptions of some contemporary nursing groups collapse. Before addressing the philosophical issues however it may help to outline the basic tenets of holism and say something of its development within western thought.

This is a central tenet of his philosophy, that persons will strive towards growth and fulfilment or what Maslow (1987) called self-actualisation.

How he went about this resulted in the biggest shake-up that psychotherapy has seen either before or since.
