Worldview


The Cosmovision is a new branch of philosophy that is based on the different points of view existing in society, since it considers that due to the different customs existing in different cultures, people see the world in a different way. The word worldview can be divided into worldview and vision, cosmos means order and refers to the universe and coherence, and vision means understanding. With what we could say, the worldview is the understanding of coherence.

As mentioned above, worldview is a branch of philosophy, with what, according to Aristotle, is a speculative and practical science, it is considered speculative because it is responsible for seeking the truth and practical as well as seeking to do it well. Each person creates his vision of the world from what he knows and believes, and this is formed through his experiences, and in this way he finds explanations for life itself.

In other words, worldview has to do with our beliefs about reality and the world, particularly in regards to our origin and destiny. Although both topics are fundamentally philosophical and religious, our view of the answers to the questions that arise from them have an impact on our personal lives and our culture.

The worldview, at the same time, depends on the social relationships that the individual has had, since the human being is a social being and cannot grow or grow away from said environment.

Education, for example, is a necessary and important social activity in the life of every child. It has been shown that people who live in isolation, such as those famous cases where children who were lost in the jungle appear for many years, do not develop many skills, it is as if they atrophy due to lack of practice and learning.

At the same time, those who receive little or poor education limit their world view, because they cannot assimilate a large amount of necessary knowledge about their environment or other important issues. For example, ignoring the political or economic situation in their own country means that they cannot see the whole environment in which they live or understand it directly and that is why they cannot generate a general idea of ​​the environment.

Religious, belief, philosophical, political, and other systems can count as worldviews because they provide the individual with a framework within which to locate and generate content. Among them are the laws and those who feel identified with them join these systems. We could say that, for example, Buddhism or socialism have their own worldview.
