Human Motivation: Commentary on Goal-Directed Action deals with human motivation, illustrating a simplistic model of a goal-directed action sequence derived from the usual layman's conception of a goal-directed action. This book consists of five chapters. After an introduction provided in Chapter 1, Chapter 2 considers the Hullian tradition in motivation, emphasizing that there is a body of evidence that requires an analysis of motivational phenomena in nonpurposive terms. The theories growing out of research on achievement motivation is examined in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 covers the theory of affective dynamics and applications of certain economic principles to human behavior, including theoretical developments to the theory of action presented in the preceding chapter. Chapter five discusses complexities in the commonsense view of action tendencies, such as the usual assumption that individuals are aware of the reasons for their actions and goals toward which their actions are directed is challenged. This publication is a good reference for students and researchers conducting work on the study of human motivation.

Is behavior motivated? And if so, can it be motivated by the anticipation of future events? What role does cognition play in such motivational processes? And, further, what role does motivation play in ongoing cognitive activity? Questions such as these provide the foundation for this book, originally published in 1989. More specifically, the chapters in this book address the question of the utility of goals concepts in studying motivation and social cognition.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Padagogik - Berufserziehung, Berufsbildung, Weiterbildung, Note: 2,0, Universitat Hamburg, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Motive sind wissenschaftlich gesehen so genannte hypothetische Konstrukte, die zur Erklarung von Verhalten herangezogen werden. Ahnlich wie die Intelligenz sind diese nicht direkt messbar, sondern sie werden uber andere beobachtbare Verhaltensweisen erschlossen. Es ist abhangig von den theoretischen Ansatzen, die man verfolgt wie Motiv und Motivation definiert werden. Rheinberg (1998) bestimmt Motivation als ein Konstrukt, das die aktivierende Ausrichtung des momentanen Lebensvollzuges auf einen positiv bewerteten Zielzustand beschreiben und erklaren soll." Nach Gage und Berliner (1996) ist Motivation das, was einem Menschen die Energie zu seinem Tun verleiht und die Ausrichtung seiner Tatigkeit bestimmt." Heckhausen (1987) meinte, dass die Motivation vornehmlich aus Wunschen, Wahlen und Wollen bestunde. Wunsche hat jeder Mensch, sie sind unverbindlich und wir wahlen aus, welche wir in die Tat umsetzen konnen bzw. wollen und welche nicht. Wir wahlen das Ziel also aktiv aus. Der Mensch hat viele Wunsche, aber diese sind nicht alle erfullbar. An dieser Stelle ist dann nicht mehr nur Motivation gefragt, sondern auch Entscheidungskraft das eigentliche Ziel zu wollen. Daruber hinaus muss man an seinem ursprunglichen Ziel festhalten wollen. In der vorliegenden Arbeit wird untersucht, wie die Lernmotivation von Berufsschulern gefordert werden kann."

The past three decades of research on human motivation have presented theories of cognitive decision-making that fail to account for numerous behavioral "paradoxes" such as the disproportional rise in motivation following the reduction in anxiety. This text provides empirical evidence and a broad theoretical framework for integrating cognitive, emotional and motivational psychology though a systems-oriented perspective.
