Mısır, Etrüsk, Roma: Piranesi Ve Bir On Sekizinci Yüzyıl Tartışması

Ek, Fatma İpek
Şengel, Deniz
One crucial debate that resonated in eighteenth-century Europe concerned the origins of European architecture whose effects continue to inform present-day notions of the same. Numerous important eighteenth-century works were produced in the context of emergence of the discipline of architectural history. In this architectural, historical, and archaeological framework, Venetian architect and scholar Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720- 1778) played an important role by his visual and literary works as well as original approach to history. Piranesi developed a history of architecture that was not based on the East/West division and the separation of continents. In opposition to writers like Winckelmann who rooted the origin of Roman architecture in the Greek, he claimed that Roman architecture derived from the Etruscan which found its roots in Egypt. Discussion of roots depended on the eighteenth century on aesthetical theory interpreting Grecian architecture as ‘beautiful’ and Roman -thus Egyptian- as ‘sublime’. It was in this lively intellectual environment that Piranesi searched the origins of Roman -and thus the whole Europeanarchitecture. His works were, however, misinterpreted as being Orientalist by contemporary scholars following Said.


Social policy making in the EU: contending paradigms and alternative approaches
Günel, Selen; Yalman, Osman Galip; Department of European Studies (2008)
This thesis analyzes the evolution of European social policy via focusing on the unfolding contentions between two different notions that disagree over Europe’s direction regarding the best social-economic system in Europe. Taking its point of departure in the ratification crisis and the impasse surrounding the Constitutional Treaty, the thesis argues that the contrasting interpretations of the Treaty and the attendant cleavages in the European polity are illustrations of such ongoing ideological struggles ...

Usta, Utku; Tanrısever, Oktay Fırat; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2007)

With respect to a hypothetical ideal type of fascism, the study will exclusively focus on French Front National case and try to unveil its historical and ideological linkages to the fascist rules in Italy and Germany during the inter-war years. While doing this, the transformation (if any) which certain elements of the extreme right rhetoric...

Palabıyık, Mustafa Serdar; Yurdusev, Ahmet Nuri; Department of International Relations (2005)
This thesis aims to analyze the contributions of the Ottoman Empire to the construction of modern Europe in the early modern period. Conventional historiography generally argues that the Ottoman Empire contributed to the emergence of the modern European identity only through acting as the ءother̕ of Europe. This thesis, however, aims to show that such an analysis is not enough to understand the Ottoman impact on the European state system. Moreover, it argues that the Ottoman Empire contributed to the constr...
The evolution of the idea of development: From developmentalism to financialisation in a comparative perspective
Kaynak , Mehtap Tuğba; Göksel, Asuman; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2020-10-29)
This thesis has attempted to show the evolution of the idea of developmentalism starting from the early ideas of developmentalism in 16th century and continuing with the analysis of developmental state from the end of the Second World War to the early 21st century. As the contours of developmentalism shifted from economic protectionism in the 1950s to market liberalisation in the 1980s, there has been a growing literature aiming at revitalizing the role of the state in social and economic transformation in ...
The essence of EU strategy in South East Europe : The Republic of Macedonia
Atay, Niyazi Güneş; Bağcı, Hüseyin; Department of International Relations (2004)
This thesis examines the South East European policy of the European Union, which promoted the prospect of a ءUnited Europe̕. After the end of the bipolar world system, the ultimate aim of the East European countries has been the integration into the European Union. The transition and integration process, that they initiated in accordance with this aim, made up the basis of their relations with the Union. Nevertheless, the South East European countries, which became a sub-region within East Europe, joined to...
