A world view is a fundamental or basic orientation of thinking – like a mindset – which guides a culture and / or a person’s life. Like a point of view, it can be built of concepts, ideas, values, emotions, and ethics. Weltanschauung is the German word for this idea. Your goal for this course is to understand the world views of these various religions. In order to prepare you for your final assignment, you will outline the world views of various religions in the chart below, adding to it each week.

For this assignment, students will complete the weekly area of the chart, filling in the aspects of each religion as it is presented in the readings and resources. This chart, when complete, will be the starting point for the written assignment, due in Week 10.

For each weekly submission:

  1. Review the weekly lectures and supplemental materials provided, then complete the chart by elaborating on each section related to the weekly content.
  2. Identify key details and examples from the weekly resources to serve as a basis for the content being recorded in your chart.
  3. Write clearly and coherently using correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, and mechanics.
