I don't particularly follow the "all worldviews are equal" point of view. Maybe in the sense that all worldviews are worldviews. But in what terms are they equal? Which parts align?
I can see the usefulness of possibly looking at various worldviews and trying to determine an underlying thread of commonality but equal?
I have a hard time swallowing that one without more information.
Thanks Burns! I agree, thats sounds pretty tough to defend and I didn't really make that point very thoroughly. My point there is that all worldviews are arrived at in the same way. Whether you're a stone cold rationalist or a mystic, the interaction between your mind and the world is equally predicated on your worldview. Does that make sense?
Right, because all worldviews are merely reactions to our fears and desires and everybody creates fairylands to have solace.
