The world is full of explanatory paradigms. A paradigm is a way of thinking. In science and philosophy, it is a set of concepts or thought patterns that bring legitimacy to an explanation. It is a world view.
In 1962, Ayn Rand was challenged to explain her philosophy while standing on one foot. She did so by saying: “Metaphysics: Objective Reality; Epistemology: Reason; Ethics: Self-interest; Politics: Capitalism.”
I wish I could be so succinct.
