Dieckmann 1964, 1975, 1981, Burkhardt 1996, Jung, Wengeler and Böke 1997, Jarren, Sarcinelli and Saxer 1998, Klein 1998 and Sarcinelli 1998). Apart from these mainly linguistic and communication theoretical subdisciplines, the discourse-historical approach, committed to critical discourse analysis, adheres to the sociophilosophical orientation of critical theory (see Horkheimer and Adorno 1991 [1944], Marcuse 1980, Horkheimer 1992, Bonß and Honneth 1982, Benhabib 1992a, Benhabib 1992b, Honneth 1989, 1990, 1994, Menke and Seel 1993, Calhoun 1995, Habermas 1996, 1998a).

Like the Duisburg group and discourse-historical theorisation, the Loughborough group stresses the context-dependence of racist discourse. They analyse interviews with people from New Zealand from a social-psychological, ethnographic and post-structuralist perspective, apply a detailed method in the investigation of discourse, and try to make the dynamics of racist ideologies explicit by including context information. They bring out the ideological dilemmas and the manifest and latent argumentation patterns (Wetherell and Potter 1992: 178 ff.

While strictly rejecting the concept of ‘race’ as an analytical one, Miles hardly questions the actual analytical force of the ‘traditional’ concepts of ‘class’ and ‘class relations’, which in view of current social change ought to be reconceptualised (for a similar critique see Wetherell and Potter 1992: 72). However, Miles (1994: 207) does not propose a holistic explanation for the expression of contemporary racism in Europe. He recognises the multiple determination of racism, with which we completely concur.
