Five Perspectives - How We See the World

ID : 83307   
« back to classes page
Do you sometimes wonder if human beings will ever learn to get along? Worldview is one of the lenses that helps to shape our perception of reality. Recognizing these five worldviews—indigenous, modern, fundamentalist, globalized and transformative—helps us develop awareness of other people’s perspectives without necessarily trying to change them. We cannot have a vibrant democracy if each of us stays in a bubble with people who share the same values and beliefs. We need to gain skills to navigate a more diverse world, which includes understanding those who live in a different zip code. With greater awareness, we may stop expecting others to change their worldview to fit ours and find that it is possible to discuss our differences with curiosity and respect. As we learn about these five worldviews, we can improve communication and relations with people who are similar to and different from us through uncovering shared values and bridging the divide. We'll examine different worldviews or perspectives present in the world today and provide ample opportunities for discussion.
