Valero, Paola (ed.) et al., Mathematics education and society, MES. Proceedings of the international conference, Helsingør, April 2‒7, 2002, Volume II. (ISBN 87-7701-906-7). 273-281 (2002).
In this paper I look at some of the present models and approaches to teacher belief systems and argue that these can only give us an incomplete picture leaving as they do, the source of belief systems in the social world unexamined or unproblematised. I offer some sociological concepts that can help us understand better how belief systems are constructed upon teachers’ ideological foundations and elaborate on how we can operationalise in practical research terms concepts of habitus and ideology.
