Abstract:

The paper is based on empirical research and discusses the importance of value system, emotions and strategies of action as factors which motivate law-abiding and law-breaking behaviors. The findings confirm that situational factors and social conditions do affect the complex configuration of individual motivations. Although the group of research subjects was relatively small, it was still possible to identify differences between the convicts and the control group as well as divergences in motivational systems within researched groups.
