Fundamentalist Faith States
Regulation Theory as a Framework for the Psychology of Religious Fundamentalism
This chapter introduces the emerging regulation theory as a framework for understanding the psychology of rank-and-file religious fundamentalists. It demonstrates that regulation theory explains both the fearful state that we observe in fundamentalists as well as problematic psychological characteristics that we have come to associate with them: Manichaean thinking, undue submission to and idealization of authority, a lack of curiosity and doubt, dissociation, and reliance on projection and splitting.
