"Mr. Muscle, Mr. Hollywood: Arnold Schwarzenegger" from American Dreams: Lost and Found by Studs Terkel

Prepared by Dr. Loretta Kasper

You should use the Search Resources section of this web site to find information on the following topics:

  1. Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently the governor of California.
    • Research his life and describe the events that led him to this position.

  2. Then research the term "self-actualization" as it was used by the psychologist Abraham Maslow.
    • Do you think that Arnold Schwarzenegger represents a self-actualized individual as defined by Maslow? Why or Why not?

  3. Finally do a search on Viktor Frankl and his theory that people ultimately are responsible for creating their own destinies.
    • In your opinion, how does Arnold Schwarzenegger's life offer evidence to support Viktor Frankl's belief that "man is ultimately self-determining?"
