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.
