Der "orientalist(e)" ist zwar der klassische "Orientalist" im Deutschen, aber die "Orientalistik", also das Fach, das der Orientalist vertritt, ist gleich "orientalism(e)" - und damit, jedenfalls seit Edward Said, nicht nur ein Fach, sondern auch eine geistige Haltung. [G] The (English and French) orientalist(e) is indeed the classical Orientalist in German, but Orientalistik - that is, the subject that the orientalist(e) represents - equates to orientalism(e), and is thus, since Edward Said at any rate, not only a subject but also an intellectual attitude.

Wer früher Orientalist war, ist heute Politologe, Literaturwissenschaftler, Soziologe, Historiker, Linguist oder Religionswissenschaftler, nur eben mit einem ,orientalischen' Schwerpunkt. [G] Those who were previously known as orientalists are now political scientists, literary scholars, sociologists, historians, linguists or comparative theologians, but with an 'oriental' focus.
