Needology vs. Wantology

The Theory of Balanceology frequently refers to the sub-branches of Needology and Wantology.

Needology = is the study of human inborn needs.  At birth we inherent key core needs.

Wantology = is the study of learned wants.  As we go through life we acquire the wanting of certain things.

Baruch Spinoza made a distinction between natural appetites (needs) and acquired appetites (wants).

Wants vs. Needs  <—> needing vs. wanting
