THE STUFF WORLD-VIEWS ARE MADE OF
AbstractAfter pointing out some general features of concept world-view, thematic theories of world-view analysis are compared to systematic theories. The latter is explored in that a model is presented which can serve not only for systematic world-view analysis, but also for comparing world-views and for dealing with world-views in opposition. The model consists of at least four elements: the internal equilibrium, the social and physical environment, world-view and ethos and world-view universals, which all contribute to an understanding of the stuff world-views are made of and for making it a useful analytical tool.
