An evolving worldview

culture-shift in university students

Michael S. Bruner, John Davenport, Jim Norwine

pp. 43-62

In this chapter, we argue that Europe and North America, and to a lesser extent other areas, are in the midst of a major change in worldviews , what we term a Culture-shift. In moving from one way of being to another way of being, world citizens, especially young adults, are moving from one set of values to another set of values. This movement from a modern worldview to a postmodern worldview is characterized by a transition from science-as-authority to a more self-referential foundation of authority.
