Purpose: This article aims to diagnose the worldview and attitudes towards native culture, religion, and the Church as well as religiously motivated ethics. Design/Methodology/Approach: The research involved 368 young Poles entering the labour market. It was assumed that these attitudes depend on a degree of approval of the traditional, modern, and postmodern worldview. The authors used the Borowiak Questionnaire “How do you view yourself and the world around you?” and a tool for attitude diagnosis. Findings: The results of the research confirmed the construed hypothesis. Positive attitudes towards the issue under elaboration were associated with higher indicators of traditionalism and lower indicators of modernism (apart from the attitude towards native culture) and postmodernism. Negative attitudes, in turn, were associated with lower indicators of traditionalism and higher indicators of modernism (except for the attitude towards native culture) and postmodernism. Practical Implications: The diagnosis of the worldview and attitudes of society is of great practical importance. People's attitude to political change is an important factor influencing its course and effectiveness. Originality/Value: The worldview is a psychological construct that plays a key role in human functioning. In case of a mature individual it is characterised by systematisation (structuring of experiences) and coherence (elimination of contradictions between elements). It is also defined by universalism, which means that it refers to many areas of life. This research considered attitudes towards national culture and traditions, the role of religion and the Church in the public life of society, and religiously motivated ethics.
