Theories of epistemological beliefs and communication: A unifying attempt
2009 (English)In: Proceedings of the 33rd Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2009, 4-257-4-264 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In order to develop more detailed knowledge about possible effects of beliefs in mathematics education, it is suggested that we look more in-depth at more general types of theories. In particular, the study of relations between epistemological beliefs and communication is put forward as a good starting point in this endeavor. Theories of the constructs of epistemological beliefs and communication are analyzed in order to try to create a coherent theoretical foundation for the study of relations between the two constructs. Although some contradictions between theories are found, a type of unification is suggested, building on the theories of epistemological resources and discursive psychology.
