Kinship — our relationships with family, friends and community. Is one of the most basic of human needs, according to psychologist Abraham Maslow, who developed his famous Hierarchy of Needs in 1943. He postulated that once our physical needs are met, the next thing we look for is a sense of connection: community, friends, family, intimacy. Without these things, our lives can feel empty and cold, with little meaning.
