abstract = {Summary: Research on personal epistemology is confronted with theoretical issues as there exist conflicting data regarding its coherence, discipline-relation and contextdependence as well as methodological issues regarding the often used questionnaires to measure epistemological beliefs. We claim that it is necessary to distinguish between relatively stable ``epistemological beliefs'' and situationspecific ``epistemological judgments''. In a sequence of interviews with regard to the topic of ``certainty of mathematical knowledge'', we show that the usual categories used in questionnaires to measure epistemological beliefs have to be differentiated. We argue that epistemological judgments provide a promising framework to interpret the statements of the interviewees.},
