The paper deals with the formation of the Kazakh humanism of the 20th century, its impact on the development of psychology and culture, based on the works of Abay Qunanbayuli. A comparative parallel between ideas of Qunanbayuli and A. H. Maslow (1954) are drawn to identify the similarities and differences in their humanistic concepts in terms of cultural, social and economic differences. The objective of this paper is to reconstruct the thoughts, established in the works of Abay Qunanbayuli, based on the methods of scientific psychology and the works of American. "The Book of Words" was chosen as the research material. The book is easy and fascinating; it encourages the reader to improve himself, become a better person. The man himself is the maker of his existence; he forms himself as a personality. This is the main concept of Abay Qunanbayuli's humanistic psychology. The humanistic psychology of American psychologist A. H. Maslow (1954) is similar to that of Abay Qunanbayuli. They were not acquainted and did not reach each other's works, but they shared a common truth – the humanistic personality psychology. The comparison revealed the similarity of humanistic ideas, their independence from the economic and social conditions.
