William Butler Yeats and mysticism: a neo-platonic approach to his poetry
Tülüce, Mustafa Uğur; Korkut Naykı, Nil; Department of English Literature (2017)
Finding the truth about the universe is the way of the mystic. Mystics try to achieve union with a transcendental power through a search within themselves and through the divine reflected on earth. The Irish poet William Butler Yeats (1865 – 1939) was under the influence of different understandings of mysticism throughout his career. This study aims to explore how Yeats‘ poetry reflects this mystical influence. The focus of the study is on Yeats‘ late period when he was highly influenced by Neo-platonism an...
Adam Smith and Karl Polanyi on the division of labor : a comparison and contrast
Erkul, Abdullah; Özveren, Eyüp; Department of Economics (2013)
The concept of the division of labor is comprehensively discussed in Adam Smith’s classic work, The Wealth of Nations (1776), and it holds a key function in his theory of economic development. As a rigorous reader of Smith, Karl Polanyi does not make use of this concept very much in his works; while he conveys Smith’s general understanding throughout The Great Transformation (1944). This calls for a review of the two authors’ use and perception of the concept of the division of labor. As opposed to Smith's ...
Theodor Adorno, on the relationship between critical theory and art
Özmacun, Tahir Erkan; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2015)

The Frankfurt School thinkers generally argued that instrumental rationality became the dominant form of reason and ceased to be self-reflective an...
Arthur Schopenhauer and Andras Angyal
Lester, David; Zeyrek, Emek Yuce (SAGE Publications, 2006-12-01)
Schopenhauer attributed will to both humans and objects, and commentators have dismissed the notion that objects have will. It is proposed that by focusing on our perception of the environment, rather than the environment itself, the theory of personality proposed by Angyal provides a way of attributing forces to both the individual and to the environment.
James Joyce's extimate modernism in Ulysses: a Lacanian take on language, subjectivity and temporality
Korkmaz Karaman, F. Tuba; Birlik, Nurten; Department of English Literature (2022-9)
The high modernist struggle to represent the modern individual and their predicament finds its best form in the works of James Joyce, whose writing discloses a radical departure from and a challenge to Cartesian epistemology, and linearity as its keyword as well as realism as its literary reflection. Joyce’s break away from linearity is reflected both in the form and the content of his writing to such an extent that his narrative style acts out the subject matter of his works. I claim that the psychoanalyti...
