This chapter presents the computational model developed to analyze the data constructed by the textual analysis. The model formalizes belief systems as Boolean circuits to systematically trace reasoning processes that connect various types of beliefs to decisions about participating in the Arab Spring (belief → belief → . . . → decision). The model permits the systematic analysis of the data to identify key beliefs and inferences related to decisions. The author first discusses how this model contributes to existing studies of belief systems and then describes the model in detail. The chapter thus sets the stage for the next chapter, which presents the results.

Keywords:   computational modeling, Boolean circuit, reasoning, decision-making, reason processes
