Sažetak
Past research indicates that people’s attitudes towards science vary significantly across different scientific areas (Lewandowsky, Oberauer & Gignac, 2013 ; Diethelm & McKee, 2009). The Scale of Attitudes towards Scientific Fields (Prot & Anderson, 2015) measures attitudes towards ten specific fields: physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, astronomy, climate science, psychology, sociology, archeology and anthropology. Participants are asked to rate each field in terms of four characteristics: “How important (1), useful (2), scientific (3), ethical (4) is this discipline?”. Attitudes towards each of the ten disciplines are computed as a sum of the four item ratings. In the current study, the scale was used in a sample of 125 freshmen from the Faculty of Kinesiology in Zagreb. A modified version of the scale was used in which “kinesiology” was added to the list of scientific fields. The component analysis with promax rotation was applied on the eleven summative results. The number of significant components was determined by Guttman-Kaiser criterion ; three eigenvalues exceeded 1. The first eigenvalue is 4, 928 and explains 44, 8% of variance. The second and third eigenvalues are considerably lower, 1, 463 and 1, 054, respectively. Together, three eigenvalues explain 67, 68% of total variance. The solution obtained by promax rotation can be easily interpreted. The correlations of three factors are moderate, ranged from 0, 39 to 0, 44. The first factor is mainly defined by physics, chemistry, biology and astronomy, and can be recognized as factor of natural sciences. The second factor is defined by psychology, sociology and anthropology and represents social sciences. The third factor is defined by kinesiology and medicine and represents health sciences. The higher order analysis gave one eigenvalue greater than one, explaining 60, 2% of variance. Undoubtedly, extracted factor represents general factor of attitude toward sciences.

Napomena
SIMPOZIJ 3 / SYMPOSIUM 3 SCIENCE DENIAL, ATTITUDES TOWARDS SCIENTISTS AND PSYCHOLOGY OF FREEDOM Convener: Sara Prot Coventry University, Coventry, United Kingdom Science denial is a common phenomenon occurring in various areas such as climate change, vaccine safety, tobacco and violent media effects. It is often accompanied by anger and personal attacks on individual researchers (Lewandowski et al., 2013) as well as development of global negative attitudes towards science and scientists (Prot et al. 2017). This symposium brings together researchers examining science denial, attitudes towards scientists and psychology of freedom. The first talk reports four correlational and experimental studies examining causal factors leading to science denial and attacks on scientists. Next, three talks examine global negative attitudes towards science and scientists. The second talk discusses metric properties of a global measure of attitudes towards scientists (the Attitudes towards Science scale, ATS), demonstrating reliability and validity across two parallel forms of the scale. The third talk examines the factor structure of the Attitudes towards Science scale in a 5-wave longitudinal study and shows evidence of a stable factor structure across time. The fourth talk examines the factor structure of Scale Of Attitudes Towards Scientific Fields (Prot and Anderson, 2015), revealing both global and specific attitudes towards different scientific disciplines (including physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, astronomy, climate science, psychology, sociology, archeology, anthropology and kinesiology). The final talk discusses the current state of the research literature on the psychology of freedom and proposes a new psychometric measure of Personal Perceptions of Freedom. This symposium integrates studies using multiple methodologies (cross-sectional, experimental, longitudinal) and aims to integrate diverse perspectives on science denial, attitudes towards scientists and the psychology of freedom.
