Arslan, Mahmuthan
This thesis explores Heidegger's Hölderlin interpretations to exhibit Heidegger's thoughts on history as a destiny of a people. The feast as the occasion of the encounter of gods and men will be set as the the inception of the history and the time of the balanced destiny. The course of history will be explained as a result of compliance and accordance with destiny, other than being an output of cause-effect chain.


Othering and Hybridity in Joseph Conrad's Almayer's Folly
Turasan Çiğdem, Ferruh; Sönmez, Margaret Jeanne M.; Department of English Literature (2013)
This thesis studies Joseph Conrad’s Almayer’s Folly in terms of two theoretical concepts; othering and hybridity. The first theoretical concept, othering, is analysed from various perspectives for three main reasons: 1) The question of “Who is other to whom?” cannot be answered thoroughly because there is a continuous power struggle between the European and the non-European characters. 2) The theme of othering in the novel is based on a view of humanity and its conflicts that is radically ambivalent, and th...
The relevancy of art and time in Heidegger's philosophy
Sarıot, Eray; Çırakman, Elif; Department of Philosophy (2008)
This thesis aims at propounding possible relations between the concepts of time and art in Martin Heidegger’s thinking. Time and art which hold a central place in different periods of Heidegger’s thinking in line with his fundamental question of Being are considered together mainly through the analysis of artwork’s temporal characteristics. The temporality of the artwork in question is investigated specifically in terms of its basic elements of earth and world and with its relation to authenticity. In this ...
The portrayal of universal harmony and order in Edmund Spenser’s Fowre Hymnes
Tekin, Burcu; Sönmez, Margaret Jeanne M.; Department of English Literature (2010)
This thesis analyses Edmund Spenser’s Fowre Hymnes in light of the holistic Renaissance world view and poet’s collection of various tradition of ideas. Spenser’s treatment of love is explored as the cosmic principle of harmony. Universal order is examined with an emphasis on the position of man in the ontological hierarchy. Thus, this thesis investigates Spenser’s own suggestions to imitate macrocosmic harmony and order in the microcosmic level.
Heidegger's thinking of earth in "the origin of the work of art" : the self-withdrawal of being and the other beginning
Genç, Alişan; Rehberg, Andrea; Department of Philosophy (2012)
This thesis aims to explicate the claim that in Heidegger's thinking technē as art emerges as capable of disclosing the fundamental movement of being, namely self-withdrawal, through a certain elaboration of earth. To this end it will be argued that the elaboration of earth in the artwork is what makes it possible for art to aid in the process of the overcoming of Western metaphysics. In connection with this I will attempt to show how technē has a determinant role in the course of Western metaphysics, which...
Alain Badiou’s ontology and utopian thought /
Kahvecioğlu, Şeref Anıl; Birler, Reşide Ömür; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2015)
This thesis analyzes Alain Badiou’s ontology in a utopian framework. Surprisingly, there is no serious academic study in literature to examine his ontology in a utopian context, even though his ontology involves significant concepts that may connote utopian impulses. Hence, the main purpose of this thesis is to fill this theoretical gap. In this regard, firstly, the thesis categorizes utopian thought as traditional and contemporary, which display utterly opposite characteristics. Secondly, Badiou’s interpre...
