|Title:||Contesting fundamentalisms : ongoing adaptations to a changing environment||Authors:||Lim, Audrey Yueying||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences||Issue Date:||2005||Abstract:||This paper makes a case for an instrumentalist and modernist logic to fundamentalism and argues that the environment frames fundamentalism. Fundamentalism is not new per se, but its form has evolved through time and varies in different contexts. I will show how fundamentalisms work as strategies of adapting to the international system and how they employ various means to ensure their survival in the ongoing "war of fundamentalisms". Religious violence is thus a survival strategy that is used in this war, which is currently being fought between the hegemonic fundamentalism -Western modernity, and the other "peripheral fundamentalisms".||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/14287||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
