Overview


In this fifth volume of the Fundamentalism Project, Fundamentalisms Comprehended, the distinguished contributors return to and test the endeavor's beginning premise: that fundamentalisms in all faiths share certain "family resemblances." Several of the essays reconsider the project's original definition of fundamentalism as a reactive, absolutist, and comprehensive mode of anti-secular religious activism. The book concludes with a capstone statement by R. Scott Appleby, Emmanuel Sivan, and Gabriel Almond that builds upon the entire Fundamentalism Project. Identifying different categories of fundamentalist movements, and delineating four distinct patterns of fundamentalist behavior toward outsiders, this statement provides an explanatory framework for understanding and comparing fundamentalisms around the world.

This fifth volume of the Fundamentalism Project tests the project's beginning premise: that fundamentalist movements share certain "family resemblances" regardless of their underlying faith. Several essays reconsider the definition of fundamentalism as a reactive, absolutist, and comprehensive mode of anti-secular religious activism; some challenge the idea that fundamentalism is a distinctively modern phenomenon; and others question whether the term "fundamentalist" can be applied to movements outside Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. A final essay delineates the distinct patterns of fundamentalist behavior toward outsiders and provides a framework for understanding and comparing fundamentalist movements around the world.
