The Basic Measurement‐Theoretic Account
This chapter develops a characterization of the empirical structure of the attitudes, using the conceptual resources developed in the previous chapter. It begins by developing a characterization of the ‘representing structure’ that is presumed to embed an image of the empirical structure of the attitudes. It then turns to the more difficult task of developing a characterization of this empirical structure itself. This is accomplished by bringing to bear both empirical considerations about the everyday use of attitude attributions and formal considerations about the sorts of mapping relations between representing and represented structures that would be necessary to support such use.
