WHAT IS THE WORLDVIEW?
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy". Shakespeare, Hamlet
SO WHAT IS THIS NOTION CALLED “WORLDVIEW,” ANYWAY?
"By Foster Gamble".
Worldview is just a term meaning how you interpret reality, or what you believe to be trueAs far as I can tell, we each have one – and though it has been vastly influenced by the thoughts of those we read, watch or associate with, we each actually have a unique perspective on what is going on.
Worldviews can and do change. In general, worldview has been most influenced by religion and science. If science teaches us that the planet is part of a closed system and the Earth is winding down, with limited resources and in time will simply use itself up, then a worldview of scarcity is likely to result. If science were to teach that the Universe is alive, and this planet is part of a living infinitely abundant universe –and that the energy winding down is matched by energy winding up, in a dynamic of expansion and contraction, that can be tapped in to cleanly and harmoniously to provide for all people everywhere, we are likely to believe that evolution is ongoing and there is plenty to go around.
