Summary
"The study of human behavior is most fascinating. It is becoming increasingly popular every day. But more significant still is the fact that the psychological approach to the perplexing problems of life is being earnestly employed. This situation creates an obligation on the part of psychologists for more scientific data. All sciences dealing with human behavior, we are often told, must be based on a thorough knowledge of human nature--original tendencies and acquired traits, innate and learned likes and dislikes, psychophysical capacities and resources, and the intricately complex reactions to the environment in actual everyday life. If this be true, it is difficult to see how we can afford to ignore drives and motives. And yet the field of motivation has been woefully neglected. There is an imperative need for a scientific study to account for the springs of human action in a comprehensive way. The present study is an attempt to meet this fundamental need"--Preface.
