It is a common place that the way we live is founded largely on the way we choose to think. It is a significant element of our practices that there should be at least a specific relation connecting thought to each other. These relations are what enable one to speak about reasons to accept a given belief. This paper aims to gain some understanding of how our beliefs influence each other. Put in another way, my interest here is to improve our understanding of what is behind the acceptance criteria that make us inclined to hold or reject a belief.
