Comments on mr. J. F. Boss' paper

Date of publication: February 1, 1970

Author: Wolfgang Meyer


In reviewing the paper presented by Mr. J.F. Boss I believe there will be consensus that this is one of the most specialised contributions to the seminar, for which we should be grateful as it is giving a clear overview on recent methodological advances in attitude theory and attitude measurement. In the following I shall try to give some information which could assist in getting a clearer view of the basic problems and the concrete operations in attitude scaling, prerequisites - and as such shortly mentioned by Mr. Boss - for understanding and evaluating the new techniques (cf. Table 4 in the paper by Mr. Boss) described by him in the main part of his paper.
