The Psychology of Worldviews | Artur Nilsson | TEDxLund



What are world views and how do they affect us? How do you talk to someone who does not share your view and opinions? This is what Artur Nilsson, Ph.D in psychology, will discuss in his TEDx talk.

Artur Nilsson is a researcher with a Ph.D in psychology. In his talk he discusses the significance of worldviews in our lives and what they do to us. During his student years, he studied psychology and philosophy in parallel and it was in the intersection of these two subjects that the idea of the importance of world views grew.

He learned to know that the research available regarding people’s world views was fragmented, unsystematic and lacked a holistic approach despite its significance in people’s lives. In 2013 he wrote his dissertation on “The psychology of worldviews: Toward a non-reductive science of personality” and is now trying to establish “The psychology of world views” as a field of research.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
