Making Some Connections

I am sorting out in my mind the ideas of worldviews, point of view, bias, perspective, social constructs...

All of us have a worldview, a broad set of conscious and unconscious ideas and assumptions about the world and how it works.

For any particular topic, we have a point of view that is shaped by our larger worldview, which itself is connected to various social constructs and individual experiences.

Within our point of view on any particular topic, we have certain leanings, or biases, which may be informed or uninformed.

All positions have embedded biases, since they are tied to an individual's point of view, which is part of that person's worldview, which is connected to the larger society and culture.

Worldview-----> Point of View--->Biases about Topic X
