Values are supposed to transcend specific situations and contexts. A country-independent relationship is expected between individual values and aggressive driving. The purpose of this novel study was to investigate the relationship between individual values and aggressive driving. The data were collected from five countries, namely, Estonia, Greece, Kosovo, Russia, and Turkey. The number of participants was 124 in Estonian, 272 in Greek, 107 in Kosovar, 132 in Russian, and 87 in Turkish samples. Participants filled out a demographic information form, Driver Anger Indicators Scale, and Short-Schwartz's Value Survey. Results of hierarchical regression analyses showed that values are related to aggressive driving (i.e., aggressive warnings, hostile aggression and revenge) of self and not to perceived aggressive behaviours of others. Value types were not related to aggressive driving, whereas higher-order values were. Conservation was negatively associated with aggressive warnings of self in the Greek sample, and self-transcendence was negatively associated with hostile aggression and revenge of self in Turkish as well as Greek samples. Social focus was negatively and personal focus was positively associated with both types of aggressive driving in the Greek sample. Social focus was also negatively associated with hostile aggression and revenge in the Russian sample. Growth anxiety-free was negatively associated with hostile aggression and revenge of self in Russian and Turkish samples. The relationships between values and aggressive driving (of self) were not country-independent for the five countries, even though the lack of significant relationships between values and aggressive driving (of others) were country-independent.


Understanding physical changes in traditional houses used as houses or hotels: The case of Mustafapaşa village in Cappadocia
Alpüren, Buse Melis; Şahin Güçhan, Neriman; Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Department of Architecture (2022-12-13)
Change can be defined as alteration between situations or a relational difference. As with everything in nature, change is inevitable for traditional buildings. With the continuity of original use or refunctioning, some of traditional houses can be changed while preserving some of their values. As a conservation problem this master’s thesis aims to see the changes caused by the interventions to meet the contemporary needs in two cases: when the traditional houses are conserved with its original function ver...

Presuppositions embedded in the consequent of a conditional sometimes project as conditional presuppositions. In this thesis, two experiments were conducted to investigate conditional presuppositions in a probabilistic framework and to test whether prior beliefs play a role in the projection of conditional presuppositions. Three types of relationships between different situations and physical objects were established (entailing, related, unrelated). Experiment I measured prior beliefs about owning the objec...
A Dual process model for incompatibilist and compatibilist folk intuitions: an experimental philosophical approach to moral responsibility and determinism
Dural Özer, Özge; Sol, Ayhan; Department of Philosophy (2019)
Intuitions are fallible and changeable. Experimental philosophy deals with these conflicting and fallible intuitions. In this study, we are questioning why people have conflicting intuitions about free will/moral responsibility, namely compatibilist and incompatibilist intuitions. Moving on with this question, we propose a dual process model in which reason and emotions interact. To support our model, we replicated a previous study (Nichols and Knobe, 2007) with some experimental set ups, not present in the...
A comparative analysis on the use of but, however and although in the university students’ argumentative essays: a corpus-based study on Turkish learners of English and American native speakers

Discourse connectives signal discourse coherence by making discourse relations explicit and by playing a role in the organization and structure of information in discourse. Therefore, their use in L2 writing is an important field of study that is likely to have implications for discourse competence both at the sentence-level discourse and at the level of larger discourse structure. The aim of the present study is to account for the use of three contrastive discourse connectives, but, however and although at...

Uncertainty accompanies almost every situation in our lives and it influences our decisions. On many occasions uncertainty is so severe that we can only predict some upper and lower bounds for the outcome of our (collaborative) actions, i.e., payoffs lie in some intervals. Cooperative interval games have been proved useful for solving reward/cost sharing problems in situations with interval data in a cooperative environment. In this paper we propose two procedures for cooperative interval games. Both transf...
