Abstract

In a broad psychological sense, belief can be described as “the mental state or function of cognizing reality.” Belief has been acknowledged as a crucial and omnipresent component of human (intellectual) life. According to Russell (1921), believing is “the most ‘mental’ thing” people do and the exploration of the nature of belief is the focal point in the analysis of the human mind. In a similar vein, Hume (1748) posits that a life without beliefs is impos-sible and that holding and updating beliefs is an inevitable part of human nature.
