The paper analyzes Abraham Lincoln's life and achievements through Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory and Kohlberg's six-stage theory of development. The paper attempts to show how Lincoln is a fine example of how we should all strive to develop. The paper notes how Lincoln promoted universal justice to the best of his abilities and how his self-actualized non-conformity and his compassion and respect for others led to the Emancipation Proclamation.
