The early theoretical development of Konrad Lorenz and the motivating factors behind his instinct concept [La prima fase dello sviluppo teorico di Konrad Lorenz e i fattori motivanti del suo concetto di istinto]

The present study discusses the early theoretical development of Konrad Lorenz in the period from 1930 to 1937. In this period Lorenz developed his position on instinct in the first place, and thus his theoretical views were subject to change. Despite this change, the paper points to relatively stable features of Lorenz’s approach, which emerged relatively soon in his scientific career and guided his theoretical development in this and beyond this early phase.
