Dialectica 11 (1‐2):187-205 (1957)

The article will bring some theoretical considerations to be applied to a study of the goal‐structure of human life.One of the theoretical questions in which this study is interested concerns the origin of the different goals and goal‐changes during life. One of the central questions is how goal‐setting and goal‐changes are brought about, what factors are responsible, what mechanisms come into play.The material of the planned research study will be selected individual and interview cases whose goal‐development and goal‐changes will be examined and interpreted.The present study is to survey some of the concepts and theoretical considerations to be applied in the study of individual's goal‐setting, toward a general theory of goal‐setting in human life
