Beswick presents a new general theory of cognitive motivation, synthesizing decades of existing research in social, cognitive and personality psychology, in which basic concepts are applied to a wide range of purposive behaviour. Combining affective and cognitive principles, the new theory is applicable to fields such as business and education.
