      BeschrijvingIncreasingly scholars and pundits invoke the term “worldview” to describe our new breed of politics, in which groups appear unwilling to enter into a dialogue with others who think differently. Take, for example, the US, where the political debate between Republicans and Democrats has led to polarization and a souring of relationships. Similar conflicts are going on in Europe, between for example populists and anti-populists. Yet, if one assumes that worldviews are mutually exclusive, one quickly ends up with a way of thinking that allows for ‘alternative facts’ – or alternative interpretations of the facts - and hence a lack of understanding. Religious scholar Todd Weir concludes, therefore, that ‘it is healthy to resist thinking in terms of worldviews.’
