The article surveys various conceptions of the understanding of the terms 'worldview'/'world model' and 'linguistic worldview' in the Russian linguistics and philosophy of the last three decades. A discussion is offered of the definitions proposed by and points of view of the following authors: Vladimir N. Toporov, Tatyana V. Tsivyan, Yurii D. Apresyan, Boris A. Serebrennikov, Serafima E. Nikitina and others. (General, conceptual, linguistic) worldview/world model is understood as a picture, interpretation, or reflection of the ideas about the world, as a complex of the knowledge about it and a system of symbolic concepts, by means of which we know and understand the world. It is a reflection of the process of coming to the knowledge of reality (manifested, among others, in the categories which people construct). It is a way in which the world is reflected. Finally, it is the totality of judgments about the world.
