Fundamentalism and Evangelicals

Harriet A. Harris

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the philosophical ideas and movements that inspired the Fundamentalist mentality. According to James Barr, the prevalence of rationalism is one of the key features that render the present Conservative Evangelicalism as Fundamentalists. He cites the pre-Kantian empirical rationalism as popularized by theologians Charles Hodge and Benjamin Warfield as the main philosophical root of the current Fundamentalist thinking.

Keywords:   James Barr, rationalism, pre-Kantian empirical rationalism, Charles Hodge, Benjamin Warfield
