  • Introduction to the Motivation Science special issue.
    • Abstract: This article introduces the special issue of the journal Motivation Science. Motivational Science was founded on the assumption that the topic of motivation is of major importance to various disciplines in the social and life sciences, as well as in the humanities. The present set of papers, based on an interdisciplinary symposium on motivation held at the 10th Anniversary of the Society for the Science of Motivation (SSM), underscores the journal’s interdisciplinary commitment, and its mission to provide a platform for behavioral scholars to exchange views and learn from, and stimulate, one another on all matters motivational. The symposium itself included submissions from neuroscientists, social and personality psychologists, an economist, and a philosopher. The present collection builds on the symposium contributions and presents a set of diverse papers that examine the topic of motivation from multiple points of view.

  • Addiction: Motivation, action control, and habits of pleasure.
    • Abstract: Addiction is a promising phenomenon for gaining insight into how motivation (wanting and liking) interacts with control of behavior. Some have proposed that addiction primarily undermines action control, such as by weakening free will or overwhelming its capabilities with strong desires. As that view is at odds with empirical evidence, we develop an alternative account. Addiction begins with discovery of new pleasure (liking), which leads to and reinforces patterns of wanting to indulge again so as to recreate that pleasure. Regular use also establishes habits of using, which are sustained by automatization as well as pleasure. Volitional control (a.k.a. free will) remains intact but its limited resources are taxed when the addict tries to quit, so that it is necessary to override many desires to indulge and to counteract the behavioral habits of indulging. Occasional lapses rekindle the habits and desires, thereby increasing the odds of full relapse. These changes to liking, wanting, and doing create many pitfalls for someone trying to quit. It is the combination of frequent weak desires and habitual impulses, rather than irresistible cravings, that most often produce failure to quit.

  • Motivational phases on the road to action.
    • Abstract: This paper considers several phase transitions that should take place for an evoked desire to result in actual behavior: The desire originates in relative liking for a future state of affairs being greater than liking for the present state. When it reaches an above threshold magnitude, and combines with an above threshold expectancy of gratification, the desire may lead to goal formation. For goal-directed action to occur, the goal must override other situational concerns (other active goals), effective means to the goal must be identified, and the individual must possess sufficient energetic resources to address the demands of pursuing that means. The novel aspects of the present analysis are highlighted, and its generative potential is discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Behavioral activation, effort-based choice, and elasticity of demand for
           motivational stimuli: Basic and translational neuroscience approaches.
    • Abstract: Behavioral activation and effort-related processes are fundamental components of the construct of motivation. Motivated behavior is often characterized by considerable vigor, persistence, and exertion of effort in the initiation and maintenance of goal-directed behavior. Moreover, pathologies associated with a lack of behavioral activation are evident in diverse psychiatric and neurological disorders. A critical neural system that participates in the regulation of effort-based processes is the mesolimbic dopamine system, which integrates aspects of motivational, cognitive, and sensorimotor functions involved in the instigation and maintenance of goal directed action. Animal procedures that assess effort-based choice have been used to characterize the behavioral functions of mesolimbic dopamine. It has been shown that interference with dopamine transmission reduces the tendency of rodents to work for food, and produces a low-effort bias, but leaves other aspects of food motivation (food intake, preference, and hedonic reactivity) intact. One way of characterizing the effects of dopamine antagonism or depletion is to say that these manipulations increase the elasticity of demand for food, that is, they make animals more sensitive to work-related response costs that allow access to food. Tasks involving effort-based choice have recently been developed into formal animal models that can be used to assess the motivational impact of conditions associated with depression, and to assess the effects of potential treatments. Research on the neurobiology of effort-related motivational functions has contributed to our understanding of the basic science of motivation, and also has shed light on the pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders that are characterized by motivational dysfunction.

  • Towards a definition of efforts.
    • Abstract: Although widely used across psychology, economics, and philosophy, the concept of effort is rarely ever defined. This article argues that the time is ripe to look for an explicit general definition of effort, makes some proposals about how to arrive at this definition, and suggests that a force-based approach is the most promising. Section 1 presents an interdisciplinary overview of some chief research axes on effort, and argues that few, if any, general definitions have been proposed so far. Section 2 argues that such a definition is now needed and proposes a basic methodology to arrive at it, whose first step is to make explicit the various tacit assumptions about effort made across sciences and ordinary thinking. Section 3 unearths 4 different conceptions of effort from research on effort so far: primitive-feelings accounts, comparator-based accounts, resource-based accounts and force-based accounts. It is then argued that the first 2 kinds of accounts, although interesting in their own right, are not strictly speaking about effort. Section 4 considers the 2 most promising general approaches to efforts: resource-based and force-based accounts. It argues that these accounts are not only compatible but actually extensionally equivalent. This notwithstanding, it explains why force-based accounts should be regarded are more fundamental than resource-based accounts. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Shared reality makes life meaningful: Are we really going in the
           right direction'
    • Abstract: We propose that evaluating a life as meaningful or significant is the outgrowth of a critical human motivation—the motivation to have others verify that what is going on in one’s life, others’ lives, and the world really matters and makes sense. A meaningful life is one that is judged to be “going in the right direction,” with a current life trajectory that is moving toward worthwhile goals—a trajectory that reveals the underlying truth of that life. For these ends to be experienced as ends that really matter, they need to be verified by others as being the right ends, thereby making them objectively worthwhile. Thus, shared reality, which transforms the subjective to objective through fundamental epistemic and social motives (Hardin & Higgins, 1996), is essential for a meaningful life and a meaningful world. Importantly, our use of shared reality in meaning-making has both costs and benefits, including ideological conflicts on the one hand and moral altruism on the other. Nonetheless, it is an essential part of human psychology. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Tell, ask, repair: Early responding to discordant reality.
    • Abstract: Analyses of early social cognition have highlighted young children’s ability to coordinate with another person by attending to the same object, engaging in a common project, talking about the same topic, or sharing a make-believe world. However, a great deal of communication is predicated on the fact that people differ in what they know and understand. Indeed, many communicative acts are aimed at bridging those divergent perspectives. A knowledgeable speaker can inform his or her listener. An ignorant speaker can seek information from someone better informed. A misunderstanding between speakers can be overcome via suitable repairs. I argue that young children are not only alert to such gaps in knowledge or understanding, they are also motivated to remedy them. In pursuit of that goal, they inform, ask and repair. They work at building a shared reality rather than taking it for granted. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Cognitive-motivational interactions: Beyond boxes-and-arrows models of the
    • Abstract: How do motivation and cognitive control interact in brain and behavior' The past decade has witnessed a steady growth in studies investigating both the behavioral and the brain basis of these interactions. In this article, I describe such interactions in the context of the dual completion model, which proposes that motivational significance influences both perceptual and executive competition. Embracing a research agenda that attempts to understand cognition-motivation interactions highlights considerable challenges faced by investigators. For example, even the standard language utilized, with terms such as “perception,” “attention,” “cognition,” and “motivation,” encourages a modular-like conceptualization of the underlying processes and mechanisms. I propose that large-scale interactions involving both task-related and valuation-related networks help understand how motivation shapes executive function. I argue that, ultimately, the mind and brain sciences need to move beyond “boxes and arrows” and fully embrace the richness and complexity of the interactions between motivation and cognition.

  • Motivation and the sense of understanding in theory construction.
    • Abstract: Philosophical work on motivation is well-intended, but too much of it supplies a maddeningly general and abstract taxonomy, with mere intuition and anecdote as the sole source of evidence. These accounts routinely contain normative dictates that are either unhelpful or mystifying. By contrast, William James (1890/1981) treated “that peculiar feeling of inward unrest known as indecision” (p. 1136) as a major source of motivation, orienting us toward the effort to understand. Whether described in terms of Loewenstein’s (1994) curiosity-as-deprivation model, or Kruglanski’s (1989) vision of the lay epistemic need for cognitive closure, the drive to discharge James’s feeling of unease motivates us to learn, and thereby teaches us that learning is rewarded with a sense of understanding, even wonder. By surveying psychological examples of narrative structure from a variety of sources, this talk presents, in grand style, theoretical evidence that motivation exploits the same narrative structures that sustain the sense of understanding. Though there is room for philosophers to participate, it should become clear that the best theorizing about motivation comes not from philosophy, but from the foundations of psychology.
