    – What is the best synonym for the verb TO PROBLEMATISE? For example, in the sentence: Most police officers do not problematise child abuse, what would you use instead of problematise?

    – Some scholars argue that Foucault used it; do you think it’s a good academic term?

    Cheers…

    I think Germans would understand it (“problematisieren”), but it is not a common English term. Maybe you could use “reflect on” or “critically reflect on”.

    Hi Ingo!

    Thank you for participating in our discussion…it seems the Germans are lucky in that degree…I tried to fit in critically reflect/reflect, it does not seem to work…I guess the search is still on…If you think of another word, let me know pls…

     

    Cheers

    I cannot think of another term. But if you like, you might simply choose and explain in a footnote or 1-2 sentences how it is understood.

    I just saw this: http://qix.sagepub.com/content/18/9.toc?etoc

    Problematize seems to be okay to use.
