Weltanschauung

A Weltanschauung (German expression calqued into English as worldview or world view) consists of a more-or-less systematised set of opinions[?] on the structure of the universe, the meaning of life and one's relationship with society.

Historically, world views changed little and slowly, achieving wide (and often unquestioning) support. Postmodernism has encouraged a proliferation of ever-changing Weltanschauungen.
