Demir, Fisun
In this study my main end will be to look into the ground of possibility of constructive value of imagination and the poetic genesis of the first humankind in Vico, first through the principle of verum-factum, and second the concept of poetic wisdom (sapienza poetica) with respect to the notion of language in particular. The possibility of the originary nature of language will be discussed in a twofold inquiry by introducing the relevance of studying Vico today in the field of philosophy, and through an example regarding "Chapulling".

Nietzsche on the Relation Between Language and Philosophy
Yıldız, Necdet; İnam, Ahmet; Department of Philosophy (2013)
This thesis analyzes the relation between language and philosophy in the thought of Nietzsche. Nietzsche criticized philosophy as traditional metaphysics mainly because he thinks that it denies life. What in language is life-denying for Nietzsche? In this study, an answer to this question is attempted, and Nietzsche’s usage of language is claimed to be consistent with his criticism of the metaphysics of language.
Heideggerian way-making to language
Sezgi, Damla; Karademir, Aret; Department of Philosophy (2016)
The main concern of the present thesis is ‘language’ in Heidegger. Beginning with a discussion of the place of the Heideggerian thought within the context of the history of philosophy, which at that time witnessed a shift which is called ‘linguistic turn’, the question ‘What is language?’ is scrutinized to show the dilemma which arises from the fact that this question itself is in language. After, from the Heideggerian perspective, the interrogation of the whatness of language is shown to be inadequate, req...

THE CONCEPT OF AKRASIA IN ANCIENT GREEK PHILOSOPHY: PLATO, ARISTOTLE, AND THE STOICS
Akkökler Karatekeli, Büşra; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2022-9)
This thesis investigates the concept of akrasia, with particular attention given to its sundry interpretations in the philosophies of Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics. In this inquiry, I argue that these philosophers agree on the lack of knowledge of the akratic person, while they differentiate from each other as to what this missing knowledge is. Irrespective of their rejection or acknowledgement of akrasia due to their conceptions of the soul, I argue that Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics share the common ...
