Who Cares? Why Study Worldview?
Worldview is the conceptual lens through which we see, understand, and interpret the world and our place within it. Everyone has a worldview, and your worldview exerts strong influence upon you via confirmation bias, experiential accommodation, the pool of live options, and life motivation. Once in place, and particularly once they have been consciously examined, worldviews do not change with ease. Peripheral worldview beliefs might be adjusted, but core affirmations are only altered under great evidential or experiential duress.
All that said, who really cares? So worldview exists, and affects us. So what? Why should anyone bother learning about worldviews in general, their own worldview in particular? Are worldview thought and study simply intellectually stimulating and informative? Or do they add something to our intellectual and spiritual life? Briefly and tentatively, I suggest that there are seven potential areas of benefit to understanding and studying worldview.
