    Quick question: Did Bhikkhu Bodhi give an account of how the domains of value were generated? I ask because it very much seems to mirror Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs (https://simplypsychology.org/maslow.html) which was published in the 50’s and is still widely referenced in psychology and education. If Bodhi (or whoever developed the domains of value) came to a similar conceptualization independently, that would be quite interesting.
