Abstract [en]

The term “Aryan” has occupied a decisive position in the intellectual history of South Asia and the modern Western world. It has moreover played a deeply menacing part in the political history of Europe. During the heyday of the term, its meaning and reference was the object of a struggle between a linguistic and humanistic understanding of “Aryan” and racial, biological‐anthropological usage. This struggle was scholarly and scientific, and at the same time intertwined with the ideological self‐understanding of different groups. This article highlights the pivotal moments in the history of the concept and its relationship to similar terms such as “Nordic” and “Caucasian.”
