"Needs not be absolute but can also be instrumental."

1

It is a sentence from p. 593 of Journal of Economic Psychology, v. 19, No. 5. Within my English knowledge, I would write it as "Needs can not only be absolute but can also be instrumental." Could anyone tell me why the author write it as the form?
