Title:The ontology of beliefs from a cognitive perspective
Type:For the conference MAVI 15, The 15th conference on Mathematical Views, Genova, Italy, September 8-11, 2009
Fulltext: pdf-format (170 kB)
 
Abstract:
In order to refine existing theories of beliefs, attention is given to the ontology of beliefs, in particular how a belief can be seen as a mental object or a mental process. The analysis focuses on some central aspects of beliefs; unconsciousness, context­ualization, and creation and change of beliefs, but also relates to research metho­dology. Through the analysis, the creation of belief is highlighted as a central aspect for more in-depth theories of beliefs. The outline of a theoretical framework is described – a framework that has the benefit of creating a coherent integration of all different aspects discussed, and which can also be used as a framework when designing and analyzing methods for empirical research.
