Much of any person’s worldview is shaped by his or her culture and upbringing.
But, the worldview is not merely a philosophical byproduct of a person’s culture, like a shadow.
It is a person’s internal mental framework of cognitive understanding about reality and life meaning.
As A.F.C. Wallace in Culture and Personality (1970) states:
“(A worldview is) the very skeleton of concrete cognitive assumptionson which the flesh of customary behavior is hung.”
