This collection of articles is written by psychologists and pedagogues from two countries: the contributors from Norway work in the field of sport science at the Finnmark University College in Alta, while those from Poland are psychologists, pedagogues, and sociologists conducting their research in varied fields at the Pomeranian University in Slupsk. The common feature is that all of these scholars are interested in the same field of research: motivation. Therefore, this book examines the issue of motivation from various angles and different approaches. At the same time, the articles also provide insight into the similarities and differences that are specific to given countries.
