Philosophical Fundamentalism

Nathan Schneider has written for Harper's, The Nation, The New York Times, Religion Dispatches, Commonweal, and elsewhere. He is editor of Killing the Buddha, an online literary magazine of religion and culture, and Waging Nonviolence, a website of news and analysis on resistance movements. His first book is forthcoming from University of California Press.

Project Overview:

Christians have made a big comeback in analytic philosophy over the past few decades, which has made way for a much more recent—and little-recognized—movement among evangelicals to make their own mark on the field. In the process, they're creating a philosophical subculture with its own celebrities, graduate schools, and websites, strategically positioning themselves to make the case for their fundamentalist faith in the public square, as well as to foster a richer intellectual life in their own evangelical communities. In the process, this movement may be changing the shape of American cultural and academic life.
