Steps Toward Characterizing A Worldview: start with Basic Choices
this uses the version 4.0 worldview theme structure
with 104 themes:
16 meta themes and 88 regular worldview themes are grouped to make 52 choices
presented on the flip sides of 52 Choices We Make playing cards
the first step: The Meta Theme Choices can serve as a starting point for characterizing and analyzing your worldview.
For each area of focus / card suit below, based on your knowledge of the worldview you are characterizing (which could very well be your own!), you have two choices (each a pair of meta themes) to consider. There are eight selections to make altogether-- two for each area. In characterizing your worldview using the Choices We Make playing cards you'll go on to make forty-four additional choices...But these first eight choices are especially important since the meta themes they involve guide choices to come. After all fifty two choices are made and a "Scorecard" completed, your meta theme choices--involving the Aces and Kings in the deck--will be used to check the consistency of the other choices, and help you find contradictions or seeming inconsistencies in your choices.
