Abstract (from the publicity materials) This book provides an introduction to the basic facts and major theories of human motivation. In his explanation of human motivation, Franken provides a typical organization that demonstrates how biology, learning, and cognition interact with individual differences to produce human behavior. Based on empirical research, the book looks to the work of researchers who have found a genetic or biological basis, a learned basis, and a thinking or cognitive basis of motivation. /// The text provides a presentation of human motivation that, while geared towards psychology students, is also of interest to students from business, counseling, education, engineering, nursing, physical education, and social work.
