Different Dissolutions of the Man-and-World Problem
Naturally, there is only one real world but people are not directly living in this single real world. J. Ortega y Gasset wrote that “man must ever be grounded on some beliefs, and that the structure of his life will depend primordially on the beliefs on which he is grounded”. Beliefs, “always constitute a system insofar as they are effective beliefs”. (ORTEGA Y GASSET, J. 1963: 283–284). According to this we can say that belief systems are those media by which people are able to live in the real world.
