Meaning of BELIEF SYSTEM

Meaning of BELIEF SYSTEM:

This denotes any complex of interrelated propositions. The ‘system’ implies a degree of coherence and the presence of some integrating general principles. Christianity is an example of a belief system. Max Weber used Weltanschauung or worldview in the same way. Although there is no consensus about finer points of usage, worldview suggests something broader less propositional and more taken for granted than belief system.
