K PROBLEMATIKE DEFINÍCIE POJMU FAŠIZMUS, „NOVÉHO KONSENZU“ A VÝVOJA V BÁDANÍ O FAŠIZME
On the problem of defining fascism, the “new consensus” and the development in fascist studies
Languages of publication
The Slovak historiography has been stubbornly ignoring the progress that has been made in fascist studies in recent years. This article seeks to provide an overview of the development in comparative fascist studies, with an emphasis on the “new consensus” historians. The main focus is on Roger Griffin’s definition of fascism as a genus of political ideology, whose mythic core in its various permutations is a palingenetic form of populist ultra-nationalism. This article also argues that, if properly used, Griffin’s definition can provide a valuable heuristic tool for recognizing and analysing fascist movements.
