Dwelling in Uncertainty

Dwelling in Uncertainty

Conclusion Dwelling in Uncertainty
Against Dogmatism

Madhuri M. Yadlapati

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter presents further thoughts on the polarization between religious fundamentalism and atheistic dogmatism and argues that, instead of dwelling on this polarized climate and retreating into the security of such dogmatic certitudes, we face ever-growing opportunities to dwell in the uncomfortable space of uncertainty and to learn from others what we do not know or see because of our respective complacency. It returns to the topics discussed in earlier chapters in illustrating the dangers between the two sides, both of which are similarly dogmatic restrictions of what is allowed or valid as means of inquiry or criteria for discussion and judgment.

Keywords:   religious fundamentalism, atheistic dogmatism, faith, doubt, uncertainty, religion, religious faiths
