This thesis is an attempt to examine the relationship between the two attitudes of Dogmatism and Alienation, as an initial step toward the construction of a theory of the interrelationship between attitudes as a future means of obtaining a deeper comprehension of political behaviour them is now possible. The two concepts will be broken down into their constituent dimensions through Factor and Scalogram Analysis and the relations between these sub-dimensions will be assessed, as indication of the degree and strength of the underlying relationship between the two major concepts. Two groups were chosen for the research, a group of undergraduates following the Introduction to Political Science Course, at McMaster University and the City Council of the City of Hamilton. The results of these two groups are not to be utilised for strict comparative purposes, they will be used to substantiate each others sets of findings.
