Fundamentalisms and society : reclaiming the sciences, the family, and education


The second volume in The Fundamentalism Project looks at the influence on branches of society (such as science, education and women's rights) by various fundamentalist movements.  Whilst they often espouse separatist ideologies they need and choose to enter into a dialogue with the modern and secular societies around them and this volume charts the influence that this process has on both parties.  The volume also looks at the role of women within these movements, finding that often women support and reinforce patriarchal modes of organisation, whilst emphasising the sacralized spheres of female authority (such as the family and the home).
