Russian term or phrase: Воззренология
Это такой предмет (и наука), стало быть.
Дремуч я стал, однако...

Автор воззренологии - отрасли знания о миропонимании, мировоззренческих проблемах бытия - Бокань Юрий Иванович (1945 г.р.), доктор философских наук, общественный деятель, активный разработчик путей решения современных проблем эпохи глобализации. Один из подписантов "Открытого обращения представителей общественности против информационного подрыва доверия к судебной системе Российской Федерации".

Более 30 лет посвятил созданию витасофии (вита - лат. жизнь + софия - греч. мудрость) - система универсальных взглядов, дающих личности внутреннюю устойчивость на основе уважения к себе, окружающим, социальному и природному миру. Это - свод передающихся из поколения в поколение истин, отражающих жизненный опыт человеческой устойчивости, хранимый мировой мудростью. Как философское направление, витасофия - стоицизм эпохи глобализации. Разработчик принятой Правительством Москвы Городской программы толерантности (2002-2004 годы), автор создания на ее инновационно-технологической базе Концепции проектирования глобальной мировоззренческой безопасности (устойчивости) современной цивилизации.

Короче говоря, чем бы дитё не тешилось, лишь бы не руками...
Но перевод, однако же, придумать надо.
Спасибо всем за вдумчивую помощь!

Explanation:
Yikes! I don't know whether to put "I am guessing" (i.e., making this up) or "High" - because evidently many thousands of writers have used the phrase "worldview studies" - https://www.google.com/search?biw=864&bih=362&ei=kBZBXOnkPKP... Whether they mean the same thing Yuri Bokan means by it, I can't tell you. In any event, why not?

What are you going to do with "витасофия"? I was going to tell you that "vitasophy" has a long history, going back at least to a 1902 book, but it turns out that that volume said that the "distinctive feature" of "vitasophy," a system of belief popular in the city of St. Louis, was "the eating of dirt on sand, for the stomach's sake"! Other sources have it as the study of certain types of magic. Evidently lots of Germans like to write articles about "Vitasophie," also chiefly in connection with magic.
