The Relationship between liberal intellectuals and power in the search for a new hegemony during AKP period in Turkey
Ersoy, Duygu; Özçoban Üstüner, Fahriye; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2012)
This study aims to contribute to the literature on the political role of intellectuals through examining the stance of a specific group with regard to power in the recent moment of Turkish political history. It is the concern of the thesis to identify the reasons behind the constant support of this specific group, namely, the liberal intellectuals to the political power under the AKP period. Depending on Gramsci‟s theory on intellectuals, it is claimed that this engagement is realized as a result of the ful...

A Meta-Heuristic Paradigm for solving the Forward Kinematics of 6-6 General Parallel Manipulator
Chandra, Rohitash; Frean, Marcus; Rolland, Luc (2009-12-18)
The forward kinematics of the general Gough platform, namely the 6-6 parallel manipulator is solved using hybrid meta-heuristic techniques in which the simulated annealing algorithm replaces the mutation operator in a genetic algorithm. The results are compared with the standard simulated annealing and genetic algorithm. It shows that the standard simulated annealing algorithm outperforms standard genetic algorithm in terms of computation time and overall accuracy of the solution on this problem. However, t...
A Critique on the Turkish Earthquake Code Regulations Regarding Masonry Construction
Erberik, Murat Altuğ; Ay, Bekir Özer (2008-11-07)
Masonry is still a commonly used type of residential construction in rural and even in urban regions. Unfortunately, the strength and stability of masonry structures are critical in the case of high amplitude cyclic lateral loads such as earthquake ground motion. Hence, the masonry buildings with structural deficiencies belong to the most vulnerable class of structures which have experienced heavy damage or even total collapse in previous earthquakes, especially in developing countries like Turkey. The dama...
The political ir/relevance of freedom in the philosophies of Sartre and Arendt
Kara, Onur; Deveci, Cem; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2011)
This study examines the concept of freedom in the philosophies of Jean Paul Sartre and Hannah Arendt in the context of their relevance or irrelevance to politics in the context of political freedom, political activity, rights and responsibilities, individuality, plurality and humanism. The major concern is to question the possibilities of political reflection of their conceptions of freedom. In this respect, the study explicates densely enough Sartre's and Arendt's conceptions of freedom respectively and in...
