The Word "Islamophobia" As a Terminus Technicus of Social Sciences?
Miloš Mrázek, "The Word 'Islamophobia' As a Terminus Technicus of Social Sciences?", Central European Journal of Contemporary Religion 2 (2, 2017): p. 19-28.
topic of this article is the appropriateness of usage of the popular term
“islamophobia” in the vocabulary of social
sciences. It deals with the difference
between particular academical discourses (philosophy, theology, religious
studies) and especially between the academical discourse in general and
ideological language. After a summary of the history of the term, its current
usage is analyzed, which leads to the conclusion that social scientists should
not look for a precise definition, since the term itself and its usage is part
of the reality (political activism, ideology), which should be a subject of
Bravo Lopez, Fernando, “Towards a Definition
of Islamophobia: Approximations of the Early
Twentieth Century”, Ethnic & Racial Studies (4,
2011): p. 556-573.
