by John G. Nicholls,Theresa A. Thorkildsen




In response to the debate over whether motivation is unidimensional or multidimensional, Thorkildsen (U. of Illinois, Chicago) and Nicholls, (deceased, U. of Illinois, Chicago) examine the ways that children fracture their intellectual lives and argue that a multidimensional definition of motivation is necessary to understand contemporary lives. Their discussion incorporates work from hermeneutic, personality, cross-cultural, and value-driven forms of psychology, focusing on the fact that individuals' needs are complex and that, as they explain in their preface, "Mathematical models of motivation are more useful for policy decisions than for classroom applications."
