Geen departs from the conventional approach to human motivation--going beyond the traditional survey of biological, behavioral, and scial bases of motivation--to capture the student's attention and focus on the problems of motivations with which we live every day. Starting from the premise that most human behavior is social behavior, Geen establishes a fundamental model of the motivational process by integrating the concepts of motive, situation, and incentive within a framework of how people set goals for themselves.
