Abstract : Several previous investigations have demonstrated a logarithmic relation between scales constructed by the method of pair comparisons on the assumption of Case V and scales constructed by the method of ratio estimation. In the present investigation the same problem was studied for continua of estimated conservatism. In this case, however, the relation between the two types of scales was linear. According to preliminary interpretation this result may be related to a qualitative character of the radicalism-conservatism continuum. (Author)
