The development of self-authorship entails attainment of a contextual epistemology. Cultural values and practices concerning knowing might influence epistemological development and beliefs. Bedouin-Israeli adolescents, from an authority-oriented culture, displayed different response patterns to an epistemological assessment than did autonomy-oriented Jewish-Israeli adolescents. Such findings prompt consideration of the culture-specificity of self-authorship.
