Heterogeneity of Societies

The subject area “Heterogeneity of Societies” contains textbook extracts focusing on the societal status quo, which is often characterised by diversity in both past and present-day societies. The term “diversity” can be applied to a variety of different categories. An example is the phenomenon of migration. It can, on the one hand, be part of the national identity of a country or, on the other hand, be used as focal point to start debates about discrimination and dissociation.

Systems of Meaning

The subject area “Systems of Meaning” contains textbook extracts dealing with different religious as well as mystical and philosophical movements. They are integrated into the WorldViews edition if they are characterised by an inter-regional or international dimension. The subject area also contains depictions relating to overarching topics such as missionary work or secularisation.
