Plausibility structures



Plausibility structures

In: Other

in layman’s term, it is what makes beliefs “plausible” aka, make sense to memebers of the group. In any society, what determines a belief to be reasonable, is made on the basis of the plausibility structure. “structure” in this context is more like a abstract system containing all the beliefs and values that in the end up reconfirm the validity of the belief.

Which sounds like circular reasoning, and to a certain extent, things like religion ARE circular reasoning.
