In this paper an introduction to the formalization of motivational attitudes of agents is given. The fundamentals for a logical characterization of motivational attitudes are reviewed. Further, an overview of the philosophical background concerning the explication ofmotivational attitudes (in relation to other mental attitudes) is provided. In the main part of this paper attention is paid to some formalisms in which some motivational attitudes are captured. Next, the scope is shifted from theory to practice. Some attempts to implement mentalistic notions are discussed. In order to let agents communicate with each other in a Multi-Agent System, some key concepts of Speech Act theory are combined with the formalization of motivational attitudes. In this paper, it is my aim to give an overview of some attempts in Artificial Intelligence to deal with motivational attitudes and to evaluate them critically.
