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.

  2. Identify key details and examples from the weekly resources to serve as a basis for the content being recorded in your chart.
