This introductory chapter begins with the proposal that there is a psychology of fundamentalism, a mindset that transcends its particularity in contemporary religious movements. It argues that the mindset of fundamentalism is something more deeply ingrained in the self that finds expression in a variety of human institutions, including religion but by no means restricted to it, and has a history that gives it protean meanings over many centuries. The chapter then discusses the purpose of the book.
