Nature of Beliefs

  • Daniel Bar-Tal
Part of the Springer Series in Social Psychology book series (SSSOC)


This book is concerned with the contents of the beliefs (i.e., knowledge) that are shared by group members. Since group beliefs is the book’s major theme, it is important first to describe a conception of knowledge that serves as a basis for further analysis of beliefs (units of knowledge, either on the individual’s or group’s level). This description serves as an “identification card” that outlines the fundamental premises that underlie the present conceptual framework.
