Cengiz, Övünç
This thesis discusses the problem of the possibility of a post-Kantian ontology. The thesis argues that Kant denies the validity of the knowledge claims of classical ontology, and argues that our knowledge claims must be limited with the daily objects of our sensation. After having discussed that the limitation brought by Kant mainly stems from the Antinomies, the thesis further argues that a post-Kantian ontology must face the reasons Kant has pointed out for the limitation of thought. Finally, the possibility of reading Hegel’s Science of Logic is discussed.

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...
