Worldview analysis appears to be more relevant than ever to our social dialogue. Today’s philosophers, politicians, educators, authors, theologians, and laymen are increasingly using the term every day. (Please see N.T. Wright’s video above, a wonderful and recent explanation of worldview.) This is not because worldview is a new and revolutionary concept—the original Weltanschauung first appeared in 1798—but because, to my belief, our society must dig deeper into the reasons behind the West’s increasing division and confusion, starting to resemble, perhaps, willful cultural suicide.
At Praxis Circle, our mission is to help build worldviews to renew a free and good society. Our goal is to accomplish this by promoting open dialogue around life’s biggest questions in a way that respects the inherent dignity of every human being. We want to go beyond exploring the major worldviews across the globe to helping you build your own worldview. We need new ways of thinking to increase understanding, bridge differences, and foster persuasion & compromise. We endorse Tom Wright’s “epistemology of love” introduced in his compelling video and described in depth in his History and Eschatology.
Building Worldviews is no small task, yet it’s one we take great joy in as an organization. Here are abbreviated highlights from 2023:
· Broadcasted our first podcast season of Building Worldviews featuring Os Guinness, Roger Scruton, Anne Bradley, and Mary Eberstadt
· Launched our first e-book: What is a Worldview?
· Sent 13 bi-monthly newsletters to our members
· Hundreds of you joined our Praxis Circle membership
