Worldviews, with caution

  • Suzanne Owen


A short personal reflection on discussions hosted by the Religious Education Council of England and Wales in 2020 around the reorienting of Religious Education around “worldviews”. I reflect on the scope this offers for overcoming the World Religions Paradigm and raise questions about its arbitrary limits, the challenges of representation and identity, and finally about the more fundamental confusion regarding the aims of Religious Education that cannot be resolved by a title change alone.
