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 ...

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.
Nietzsche and the human rights
Altun, Damla; Deveci, Cem; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2006)
Today the conception of human rights is an idea that preserves its intransitive, inalienable and indivisible quality with a cross-cultural reference. The idea of human rights, entering our lives from the 18th century onwards, has gained a worldwide recognition through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The idea occupies place both at the level of rules and principles as a project and at the level of our daily problem solutions, modifications and the daily course of our lives as a pragmatics. The pol...
