Deep Structure of Culture Worldview
Worldview
Deep Structure Review The key to why a culture views the world as it does. The earliest markers in the evolution of culture were: Family, History (Community) and Worldview (Religion, Secularism/Scientific, and Spirituality/Metaphysical).
“ Worldview” definitions Worldview is a culture’s orientation toward God, humanity, nature questions of existence, the universe and cosmos, life, moral and ethical reasoning, suffering, death, and other philosophical issues that influence how its members perceive their world. Worldview is a way we interpret reality.
Worldview and Culture Often, worldviews operate at an unconscious level so we are not even aware that other ways of seeing the world are possible. (Hall) Worldview provides some of the unexamined underpinnings for perception and the nature of reality. (Dana)
Expressions of Worldview –  The Big Questions. What is the purpose of life? Is the world ruled by law, chance, or “God?” What is the right way to live? How did the world begin? What happens when we die?
Expressions of Worldview –  The Big Questions. What is the purpose of life? Is the world ruled by law, chance, or “God?” What is the right way to live? How did the world begin? What happens when we die?
Forms of Worldview – Religion There is no known group of people anywhere on earth who, at any time over the past 10,000 years, have been w/o some manifestation of spirituality or religion. A belief in the existence of a reality greater than the human has served as a definer and creator of cultures. (more upcoming)
Forms of Worldview – Secularism As early as 400 BC, Plato spoke of the portion of humankind that did not believe in the existence of any of the gods. At the heart of secularism is the view that human beings can get along fine w/o God.
Secularism, cont. Not only do secularists deny the existence of God, they hold a belief in the centrality of science and the scientific method. Maintain that because death is final and there is not heaven, hell, or reincarnation, a person should engage in acts that contribute to the good of humanity in this world.
Spirituality At the core is the belief that each person use his or her individual resources to discover inner peace. Is more of a personal search rather than a way of having answers to life’s big questions imposed by something outside the person.
Spirituality, cont. Followers of this approach say: Knowing yourself will give you a sense of purpose, allowing you to connect to others and a “higher source.” Spirituality can be expressed in a host of ways: contemplation and art, meditation, prayer, and even traditional religious worship.
Religion and Intercultural Comm. Globalism, peoples of religion are no longer long distances from each other. Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Christians are highly mobile. Study of religion prepares us to appreciate different modes of behaviour. It is also urgent to be able to assess real and potential dangers posed by extremists.
Religious Similarities Speculation . Religions help us understand where people came from, why they are here, what happens when they die, why there is suffering. Sacred Scriptures . Each religion believes its sacred writings have divine or spirit-induced origin. Written/spoken by God or teachers with deep spiritual insight.
Similarities, cont. Rituals   Ritual recalls past events, preserving and transmitting foundations of society.  Participants in ritual become identified with sacred past, perpetuating traditions as they re-establish the principles by which the group lives. Serves to relieve social tensions and reinforce bonds.
Religious Similarities Ethics . Religions discriminate what is acceptable and unacceptable ie. Right and wrong. Safe Haven . Religious beliefs offer the comforting sense that the vulnerable human condition serves a great purpose. People are therefore less likely to collapse in despair when confronted by life’s calamities.
Christianity Largest of traditions: over 1/3 of the world’s population claims an affiliation. World Christian Encyclopedia lists 33,800 different Christian denominations. Three main branches: Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Protestantism.
Core Assumptions A monotheistic tradition with a belief in the trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God (Father) is the eternal creator, Jesus (Son) is the savior of humankind who then died and was resurrected, physically rising from the dead (Holy Spirit). Christianity is a set of principles that offers followers beliefs, a way of life, and a community. Christianity
Cultural Manifestations Organized Worship.  Christianity emphasizes and encourages a gathered community, the church. Individual.  Appealing in a culture that values individualism – One-on-one bond with God. Doing.  “Living in the world” rather than withdrawing is emphasized. Christianity
Cultural Manifestations, cont. The Future.  Built into Christian ideology is a positive and optimistic outlook toward the future. Gender.  Jesus readily accepted women into his circle of friends and disciples. Courage.  One of the most enduring tendencies of the Jesus story is the message of courage in the face of adversity. Christianity
Notions about Death Christian doctrine maintains there is an “afterlife” – an eternal life and that salvation is possible through the caring and loving creator. The human soul is immortal and is destined to spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven. Hell is sheer torture and is reserved for the damned who will be cast into the furnace of fire.  Christianity

Worldview I

  • 1. Deep Structure of Culture Worldview
  • 3. Deep Structure Review The key to why a culture views the world as it does. The earliest markers in the evolution of culture were: Family, History (Community) and Worldview (Religion, Secularism/Scientific, and Spirituality/Metaphysical).
  • 4. “ Worldview” definitions Worldview is a culture’s orientation toward God, humanity, nature questions of existence, the universe and cosmos, life, moral and ethical reasoning, suffering, death, and other philosophical issues that influence how its members perceive their world. Worldview is a way we interpret reality.
  • 5. Worldview and Culture Often, worldviews operate at an unconscious level so we are not even aware that other ways of seeing the world are possible. (Hall) Worldview provides some of the unexamined underpinnings for perception and the nature of reality. (Dana)
  • 6. Expressions of Worldview – The Big Questions. What is the purpose of life? Is the world ruled by law, chance, or “God?” What is the right way to live? How did the world begin? What happens when we die?
  • 7. Expressions of Worldview – The Big Questions. What is the purpose of life? Is the world ruled by law, chance, or “God?” What is the right way to live? How did the world begin? What happens when we die?
  • 8. Forms of Worldview – Religion There is no known group of people anywhere on earth who, at any time over the past 10,000 years, have been w/o some manifestation of spirituality or religion. A belief in the existence of a reality greater than the human has served as a definer and creator of cultures. (more upcoming)
  • 9. Forms of Worldview – Secularism As early as 400 BC, Plato spoke of the portion of humankind that did not believe in the existence of any of the gods. At the heart of secularism is the view that human beings can get along fine w/o God.
  • 10. Secularism, cont. Not only do secularists deny the existence of God, they hold a belief in the centrality of science and the scientific method. Maintain that because death is final and there is not heaven, hell, or reincarnation, a person should engage in acts that contribute to the good of humanity in this world.
  • 11. Spirituality At the core is the belief that each person use his or her individual resources to discover inner peace. Is more of a personal search rather than a way of having answers to life’s big questions imposed by something outside the person.
  • 12. Spirituality, cont. Followers of this approach say: Knowing yourself will give you a sense of purpose, allowing you to connect to others and a “higher source.” Spirituality can be expressed in a host of ways: contemplation and art, meditation, prayer, and even traditional religious worship.
  • 13. Religion and Intercultural Comm. Globalism, peoples of religion are no longer long distances from each other. Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, Christians are highly mobile. Study of religion prepares us to appreciate different modes of behaviour. It is also urgent to be able to assess real and potential dangers posed by extremists.
  • 14. Religious Similarities Speculation . Religions help us understand where people came from, why they are here, what happens when they die, why there is suffering. Sacred Scriptures . Each religion believes its sacred writings have divine or spirit-induced origin. Written/spoken by God or teachers with deep spiritual insight.
  • 15. Similarities, cont. Rituals Ritual recalls past events, preserving and transmitting foundations of society. Participants in ritual become identified with sacred past, perpetuating traditions as they re-establish the principles by which the group lives. Serves to relieve social tensions and reinforce bonds.
  • 16. Religious Similarities Ethics . Religions discriminate what is acceptable and unacceptable ie. Right and wrong. Safe Haven . Religious beliefs offer the comforting sense that the vulnerable human condition serves a great purpose. People are therefore less likely to collapse in despair when confronted by life’s calamities.
  • 17. Christianity Largest of traditions: over 1/3 of the world’s population claims an affiliation. World Christian Encyclopedia lists 33,800 different Christian denominations. Three main branches: Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox, and Protestantism.
  • 18. Core Assumptions A monotheistic tradition with a belief in the trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God (Father) is the eternal creator, Jesus (Son) is the savior of humankind who then died and was resurrected, physically rising from the dead (Holy Spirit). Christianity is a set of principles that offers followers beliefs, a way of life, and a community. Christianity
  • 19. Cultural Manifestations Organized Worship. Christianity emphasizes and encourages a gathered community, the church. Individual. Appealing in a culture that values individualism – One-on-one bond with God. Doing. “Living in the world” rather than withdrawing is emphasized. Christianity
  • 20. Cultural Manifestations, cont. The Future. Built into Christian ideology is a positive and optimistic outlook toward the future. Gender. Jesus readily accepted women into his circle of friends and disciples. Courage. One of the most enduring tendencies of the Jesus story is the message of courage in the face of adversity. Christianity
  • 21. Notions about Death Christian doctrine maintains there is an “afterlife” – an eternal life and that salvation is possible through the caring and loving creator. The human soul is immortal and is destined to spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven. Hell is sheer torture and is reserved for the damned who will be cast into the furnace of fire. Christianity
