Reading Notes: The Multifaceted Nature of Intrinsic Motivation (2/2)

This is a continuation from a previous post, where I started to write down a synthesis of Steven Reiss' paper "The Multifaceted Nature of Intrinsic Motivation". The author questions the concept of "intrinsic motivation". Intrinsic Motivation (or Motive) theory states that there is a special category of motives which, when pursued, provide satisfaction to the individual, without any external incentives. The action in itself is motivation enough. The author questions this point of view, stating that the various examples of intrinsic motives given don't share any common characteristics, proving that there is no ground on which to group different motivations together under that category. Instead, he defends a multifaceted view on motivation - there are many different motivations, without any global categories, and each and every motivation can serve as an "end-goal" in themself.
