The analysis presented in this article concerns how citizens organize their beliefs about America's role in the world affairs. An intensive analysis using Q methodology is offered as an alternative means for uncovering the structure of foreign policy attitudes. The analysis revealed four distinct viewpoints. In discussing the viewpoints we offer a critique of the methodological presuppositions underlying earlier empirical research and the implications of those presuppositions for our theoretical understanding of the subject.
