AN INTEGRATED THEORY FOR THE STUDY OF EDUCATION--PILOT DEVELOPMENT (THE CASE OF MOTIVATION).
HANSEN, DONALD A.; ZOLLSCHAN, GEORGE K.
A PARTIAL THEORY OF MOTIVATION WAS CONSTRUCTED WITH A FOCUS ON THE INDIVIDUAL-IN-SITUATION AND SOCIETAL PHENOMENA. THIS WAS AN INITIAL STEP TOWARD RESOLUTION OF LARGER PROBLEMS--(1) RESEARCH-ORIENTED THEORIES EMPLOYED BY PSYCHOLOGISTS AND SOCIOLOGISTS ARE OFTEN DIFFICULT TO INTERRELATE WITH ACTION-ORIENTED EDUCATIONAL THEORIES AND (2) SPECIAL METHODOLOGICAL FRAMEWORKS OF THE PSYCHOLOGIST AND SOCIOLOGIST SEEM TO CONTRADICT ONE ANOTHER WHEN APPLIED TO EDUCATIONAL SUBJECTS. THE CONCEPT OF MOTIVATION DEPICTED (1) ESTABLISHMENT OF GOALS FROM EXIGENCIES ACTING UPON EXPECTATIONS, JUSTIFICATIONS, AND AN EQUILIBRIUM OF TENSIONS, (2) ATTRACTION OF ACTIONS TO SEQUENTIALLY LINKED GOALS, AND (3) IMPACT OF HUMAN ACTORS AS STABLE OBJECTS WHICH AFFECT CHOICES OF GOALS. APPENDICES PRESENTED (1) SUGGESTIONS ON THE THEORY OF INSTITUTIONALIZATION FROM WHICH THE THEORY OF MOTIVATION WAS DERIVED AND (2) SPECULATIONS ON MOTIVATION AND THE CLASSROOM WHICH EXPLORED FALSIFICATIONS, AUTONOMY, AND ACHIEVEMENT.
