Jayson and Eugene and ...... In so far as I am aware, the discussion of
the concept of motivation in the US takes place in complete isolation
from Leontiev's attempt to provide a three level hierarchy in which motive
is used in relation to the concept of object which has no easy or
unique interpretation in English. I fear that mixing discussions of
"motivation" form different theoretical frameworks in a piecemeal fashion
is likely to lead to massive confusion.

Do you see this as an issue?
