Abstract

The Debate about populism is exuberate. It is, therefore, obligatory for discourse scholars to disengage themselves from this perceptual and linguistic confusion and remove to the analytical view of what these parties claim and how these claims include appeals to the "people", and how their political style and condition occur simultaneously or overlap. The category of populism itself cannot be used in a non-reflexive manner as a social-scientific analytic use of this term may or may not overlap with the way this category is used in everyday political language use. This volume contains articles that problematize and analyzed both the table of populism" and the notion of the people" in different European contexts from a wide variety of several discourse-analytical and discourse theoretical perspectives.
