All peoples have a worldview: a complex conception of the world and their place in it. Much of it is unconscious and shared with many other species. What is distinctive of human worldviews is that they include conscious and teachable formulations—some of which involve extra- or supernatural elements—and show considerable variability between even the simplest of human societies sharing similar environments. In all likelihood the capacity for distinctively human worldviews was a very gradual development that well predates the emergence of Homo sapiens.
