Liberals vs. Fundamentalists

Newbigin characterises the differences between liberals and fundamentalists as related of the wider split in society between arts and science. The [ artsy types | liberals ] focus on the subjective nature of knowledge and it's relation to the "knower." The [ fundamentalists | scientists ] focus on the objective nature of knowledge and it's relation to the "out there" truth.

It's a theory that seems to be generally true.
