BRAUDEL'S MATURE MEDITERRANEAN: CIVILIZATION AND CAPITALISM

2015-01-01
Karagoz, Ufuk
Ozveren, Eyup
This paper identifies the mature form of Braudel's conception of the Mediterranean within the broader context of his Civilization and Capitalism: 15th-18th Century, where it is only indirectly represented. While the Mediterranean as a historical protagonist albeit to different degrees appears in parallel fashion in the unfolding of all his three major books, The Mediterranean hosts only a nascent and fuzzy form of the tripartite schema of Civilization and Capitalism which Braudel derived from the study of the Mediterranean region and then generalized. Hence, Mediterranean specialists who focus on The Mediterranean exclusively miss the additional role of the Mediterranean as a world-maker; a salient point made in Civilization and Capitalism.

The theory of capitalism and its ontological foundations: comparative study of Marx and Deleuze&Guattari
Kocagül, Volkan; Sol, Ayhan; Department of Philosophy (2006)
The main objective of this thesis is to examine the theory of capitalism and its ontological foundations through the major works of Marx and Deleuze&Guattari. In his monumental book called Capital, Karl Marx develops an account of capitalism based on his understanding of philosophy of which takes its roots from Hegel and Feuerbach. Additionally, English political economy and French socialism serve as reliable grounds for Marx’s analysis. In light of the writings of these historical precursors, Marx constitu...
Capitalism and democracy at a crossroads: the civilizational dimension
Ozveren, E (1998-06-01)
This paper evaluates Schumpeter's grand vision as reflected in his Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy, and elaborates it in conjunction with the so-called "globalization" trends characteristic of the wake of the twenty-first century. In addition to the evolutionary nature of his methodology, the institutionalist dimension of Schumpeter's definitions are brought to light. A case is made for a fundamental process of "uncreative destruction" as far as the institutional setup of the economy is concerned. The c...
A Critique of world - system inspired historiography of transition to capitalism in the Ottoman Empire
Erkurt, Beyhan; Aytekin, Erden Attila; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2013)
This thesis examines world-system inspired historiography on transition to capitalism in the Ottoman Empire that has been developed as a criticism of the modernization theory that was dominant in the analyses of the Ottoman transformation. It is argued that although the world system inspired analyses overcome the restrictions imposed by the modernization analyses that are based on the deficiencies of Ottoman society compared to the West, they are also crippled with their own restrictions. Considering change...
Deleuze and contemporary dystopia
Çokay Nebioğlu, Rahime; Korkut Naykı, Nil; Department of English Literature (2018)
The turn of the new millennium has seen the rise of late capitalism and witnessed a radical change in the structure of the contemporary world, which initiated a new social formation that is seemingly more flexible and liberating yet indeed more controlling. This dissertation looks at contemporary dystopia in the light of these recent changes, arguing that there is now a new moment in the history of dystopia. This new moment suggests that, just like the contemporary world itself, contemporary dystopia has gr...
Old and New Problems in the Balkans and Marxism
Türkeş, Mustafa (2018-12-01)
Efforts to determine the place of Marxism in the Balkans in a historical manner seem to enable us to outline not only the historical importance of Marxism but also to point out more precisely its relevance with contemporary problems and possible solutions in the Balkans. In order to outline very briefly the place of Marxism in the Balkans, this paper first seeks to discuss the old (late 19th, early 20th) and new (late 20th, early 21st century) common problems people in the Balkans encountered with a view to...
