Importance of art in authenticating dasein

Şenyurt, E. Yasemin
The aim of this thesis is to try to establish a relationship between Heidegger̕s thought on authenticity and art, and to show the role of art in authentic being of Dasein. Dasein̕s being authentic depends on Dasein̕s revealing of itself as itself. In this respect art plays an important role in revealing Dasein as itself. Thus, the relation between art and authenticity can be based on alethia which is the revealing of being as itself. At the same time art plays an important role in authenticating Dasein by its world-disclosing feature as it allows Dasein̕s own world to reveal itself in its own way.

The analysis of alienation [Entfremdung] in being time from a Marxist perspective
Keskin, Eda; İnam, Ahmet; Department of Philosophy (2010)
In this thesis, the problem of human being’s alienation from its own Self, society, species-being, objects (products) and labour, which occurs in capitalist modernity through the formation of mass cultures, is analyzed in the conceptual context of Being and Time. In this respect, it is discussed that Heideggerian philosophy is not at odds with Marxism in contrast to Theodor W. Adorno’s arguments in The Jargon of Authenticity. Additionally, the claim of this study is that Heidegger’s ontologico-existential p...
How to follow a rule : practice based rule following in Wittgenstein
Adanalı, Yurdagül Kılınç; Ergüden, Akın; Department of Philosophy (2005)
Rule following is a central concept in the philosophy of Wittgenstein who was one of the pioneers of modern philosophy. Wittgenstein criticizes the traditional concepts of rule, because they were vague, ambiguous, and idealized. He thinks that it is not possible to isolate rules from practice and that a rule takes its meaning in a certain context or in practice. Wittgenstein̕s concept of rule following is closely related to a set of concepts: internal relation, understanding, criterion. These concepts expla...
Reconceptualizing the architectural precedent: textual models of reading
Beşeli Özkoç, Heves; Gür, Berin Fatma; Department of Architecture (2015)
The aim of this thesis is to reconceptualize the “architectural precedent” in a way to reveal its potentials as an instrument for architectural design and education. The main concern is to use the architectural precedent as a source of knowledge and form generation, but not as a model for functional problem solving. In order to generate new knowledge and form, the precedent should be read textually rather than formally. While formal reading reveals existing knowledge underlying the precedent, textual readin...
The Impact of Architectural and Urban Patterns on the Behaviour of an Exhibited Angular Size-Illusion
Djordjevic, Djordje; Djukanovic, Gordana (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2017-6-15)
This paper continues a research in which it has been confirmed that the angular size-illusion underpins a contradictory effect related to a seeming size-decrease of focused architectural and urban objects as the observer approaches them. It explores the impact of various architectural and urban patterns on the behavior of an angular size-illusion noticeable during movement. To obtain sustainable conclusions, real locations are selected and simplified. Simplification criteria are defined respecting the preco...
