Heidegger’s fundamental ontology as a political project
Soysal, Zühtücan; Karademir, Aret; Department of Philosophy (2016)
Martin Heidegger’s fundamental ontology has long been debated in relation to Heidegger’s personal political affiliations with National Socialism, and there is a wide scope of interpretations as to whether his thought is essentially linked to the Nazi ideology. The customary way of reading the Heideggerian corpus within this context is to investigate whether or not the fundamental ontology yields a discriminatory political stance in favor of Germans over the rest of the people (or a group of them), and both ...
Thomas Hobbes and Carl Schmitt on the tension between sovereign and law
Ünlü, Özlem; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2018)
This thesis aims at developing an understanding of the vital role that the political decision plays in the tension between sovereign and law through an examination of the constitutional theories of Thomas Hobbes and Carl Schmitt. In Schmitt’s classic work Dictatorship of 1921, the sovereign decision derives its legitimacy from its norm-preserving power, whereas in Political Theology appeared in 1922, it legitimizes itself on basis of the norm-giving power.

Nationalism and the ‘inter-national’: a critical survey of internalist thinking within theories of nationalism

Ibn Khaldun’s conception of dynastic cycles and contemporary theories of international system change: a comparative assessment /
Yücekaya, Metin; Yurdusev, Ahmet Nuri; Department of International Relations (2014)
This thesis intends to nurture the argument that Ibn Khaldun’s thought on rise and fall of dynastical polities introduces a distinct approach to the field of International Relations. Throughout the paper, it is argued that Ibn Khaldun’s perception about the world, history and politics is less normative but more scientific. However, it is also claimed here that despite the similarities on politics and cyclical history and even transition concept with realist such as Gilpin, Modelski, Kennedy, Khaldun’s defin...
