This chapter comes with a warning: it is made up of generalisations, and is a simplified view of conflicting world-views that were competing with each other in Shakespeare’s time. I advise readers to follow up at least some of the suggestions in ‘Further Reading’ (at the end of this book), in order to achieve a more sophisticated understanding of the early-modern background than this short chapter can provide.
