THE MESSIANIC CHARISMA: HOW AND FOR WHOM IT OPERATES

Ali Kemal ÖZCAN.

Abstract
The extent of depersonalised power of charisma in political entities is the main theme of this article. Although Max Weber partly articulated the particular 'phase' of the phenomenon under 'routinized charisma', the non-individual aspect of the power of charisma has no deserving attention in the related literature. The paper aims to contribute to the theorisations on charisma in political organisations in terms of the 'how' of its functioning. It argues that the 'unbridled-awesome' power is in effect a non-individual phenomenon. The very power is reified both not by and not for the person of charisma but by and for a corporate body. The net-like organized body 'matures' as the actual Subject of depersonalised-bureaucratised hegemony under the person and persona of the charismatic leader whose 'remote' presence does not reach to the factual working of the power -just as it is in his/her absence.

Key words: Charisma; Messianic; Weber; Reification of Power ; Routinization

Ozet
Politik oluşumlarda, karizma sahibinin kişiliğinden bağımsızlaştırılmış karizma gücünün kapsamı, bu makalenin temel temasıdır. Fenomenin bu özel 'aşama'sını 'rutinleşmiş karizma' kavramsallaştırmasıyla Max Weber bir ölçüde ifadelendirmesine rağmen, karizma gücünün kişilik-ötesi boyutu ilgili literatürde hakkı ölçüsünde yer bulmamıştır. Bu makale, politik örgütlenmelerde karizma gücü üzerine yapılmış teorik çalışmalara, pratik güce dönüşmesinin 'nasıl'ı anlamında bir katkı yapmayı amaçlar.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Karizma; Messianik (Kurtarıcılıksal); Weber; İktidar Gücünün Pratikleşmesi (Pratik Hayatta Somutlaşması); Rutinleşme
