 Worldview - Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments
Worldview: Worldviews, according to Max Weber, are "coherent sets of values" that provide "answers to the broader questions of meaning, purpose, suffering, and injustice." They provide individuals with a sense of direction, organization, and unity in life. Weber distinguished worldviews from other collections of beliefs and values in two ways analytically, their coherence and comprehensiveness distinguish them from organizational cultures or ideologies, and to the degree that they form a system of rationalized beliefs and claims, they are distinct from myths or cosmologies. See also M. Weber.
