Here is my best explanation:

'unacceptable beliefs' is the definition.

The answer and definition can be both related to thinking as well as being plural nouns.

Maybe there's an association between them I don't understand?

'that woman see is wrong' is the subsidiary indication.

'that woman' becomes 'her' (I've seen this before**).

'wrong' indicates an anagram.

'see'+'is'='seeis'

'seeis' anagrammed gives 'esies'.

'her'+'esies'='heresies'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for heresies that I've seen before include "Beliefs that reject the orthodox tenets of a religion", "unacceptable beliefs" and "Series he composed about anti-religious opinions".)
