Yes, but I can't answer it. "Worldview" is not a well defined term, and I doubt that there is any universally correct way to slice them up. What I've been meaning by it -- and I hope this accords with most others here -- though I never really thought it out before -- is: if it's based on a different set of assumptions, it's a different worldview. Hey, I just came up with the correct way to slice them! Didn't I?
