This research aims to reflect aspects about Abraham Maslow's biography, his project of Humanistic Psychology and the current status of his ideas in Brazil. We introduced, initially, a biographical sketch of Maslow. Then, we situated his participation at the development of the Humanistic Psychology in EUA. Posteriorly, we presented three bibliographical investigations analyzing the reception and the circulation of Maslow's ideas in Brazil. The first is a narrative review in two databases; the second examines the Maslow's books and books mentioning Maslow published in Brazil; the third shows the Maslow's ideas in general books of Psychology and Management. We evidenced that the life and Maslow's work allows an articulation with a Humanistic Psychology, that for it he had defined purposes before, during and after of his ascension. The Maslow's Psychology is partly received in Brazil the circulation of his ideas occurs, hegemonically, in texts related of Management area and of the Organizational Psychology. Finally, we point out other possibilities to develop the Maslow's legacy in Brazil.
