Abstract

In a recent development, philosophers of religion have been attracting the label “fundamentalist” (Wolterstorff 2009: 156). Colleagues who call them this do not mean:

that they belong to fundamentalist movements or churches;

that they engage in the kind of religio-socio-political activities that are often associated with fundamentalism (be they activities of political militancy or of political withdrawal and separation);

that they subscribe to doctrines or outlooks often associated with fundamentalism, such as non-evolutionary views of creation, apocalyptic end-time thinking, or a conviction that they belong to the chosen few.
