world views

This intellectual lens through which we observe and interpret everything is called a worldview, and every person has one.

A worldview is a set of assumptions that governs our explanation of life and everything in it – a collection of core beliefs we hold without deliberately choosing them.

They can be analysed by the answers they offer to prime questions such as:

  • What is ultimate reality?
  • What is mankind and how do we know it?
  • What is good and how do we achieve it?
  • What is beauty and how does it relate to life?
  • Is there a basis for morality, and if so, what is it?
  • What is evil and its solution?
  • Is human history headed anywhere, and if so, where?
  • Most human conflict arises from a clash between worldviews.

    Our thoughts and choices are filtered through our worldview, and our actions reflect it.
