Worldview or View Christ?
I was thinking about the name "Abraham Kuyper Society". By adopting this name, we might falsely suggest that we're all about reintroducing Kuypers ideas on science, religion and other spheres of life. However, Kuyper cannot NOT be the most important reason for our existence. In fact, when I think about worldviews, I seriously doubt whether there is such a thing as 'the Christian view on ... [philosopy, theology, social science, psychology, political science, physics, chemistry mathematics...].
I am a political scientist. And I share my flat with another student of political science. Both of us are Christians. We're best friends, and we have much in common. Yet, we have very different (Christian) views on the latest developments in the Middle East. Surely, we are still brother and we both belong to Jesus.
Therefore I'd say that much more than about worldviews the Abraham Kuyper Society should be about directing hearts towards Jesus Christ, while leaving room for discussion, and - more important - leaving room for God's Spirit to guide us and speak to us.
Instead of creating the Christian view of all things, we should aim at viewing Christ. As far as I know neo-calvinist thought, that would mean the Abraham Kuyper Society would actually be more 'Dooyeweerdian' than 'Kuyperian'.
But I still feel that Kuyper is a more appropriate name at the Vrije Universiteit, after all; it was founded by him in 1880.
