The political public sphere as the maintenance of order: convergence in Hannah Arendt and Jurgen Habermas



The Imaginary and Descartes’s Paradoxical Rationality
İbrahimhakkıoğlu, Fulden (2018-05-01)
The imaginary plays a distinctive role in Descartes’ writings. While its place is often articulated in negative terms (as that which is illusory or deceptive), it nonetheless serves as an important ground for the Cartesian project to unfold. Descartes’ search for clear and distinct ideas takes place through reason’s interplay with the imaginary. While its reliability as a source of knowledge is ultimately dismissed, the imaginary is that which is never truly mastered or overcome. It is a source of dread and...
The Possibilities and limitations of articulation and political subjectification mechanisms in Turkey
Akgün, Recep; Hoşgör, Hatice Ayşe; Department of Sociology (2018)
This thesis analyzes the articulation and political subjectifications in the contemporary radical popular and mass political experiences.

It indicates the theoretical and analytical limits of the universalist and essentialist perspectives. Also, it criticizes the perspectives that neglect the role of the agency and the local social and political conditions. Thus, it concentrates upon the Tur...
The reward of unification: A realist reading of the predictive processing theory
Davoody Benı, Majıd (2018-01-01)
In a recent paper, Colombo and Wright (C & W for short) built on their neat assessment of the activity of mesocorticolimbic dopaminergic (DA) systems to argue that hierarchical predictive processing theory of the brain (PTB) is not the grand unifying theory that has been claimed by its advocates. To the contrary, they argued that the scientific practice is consistent with a pluralist reading (Colombo & Wright, 2016). Despite its reliance on solid experimental resources, C & W's defence of explanatory plural...
Socio-Spatial Politics of Otherness: The Desire to Construct a Counterhegemony
Yoltay, Ece (2019-03-01)
This study is based on an empirical research to understand the production of nongovernmental spatial practices and representations with a counterformation to an authority, as well as an ontological discussion on the relations between public space and power. In this respect, the study is constructed on an alternative spatial reading of counterspaces (LGBTI-friendly spaces, political spaces, and resistance spaces) in the capital of Turkey, Ankara, benefiting from Henri Lefebvre’s theory on the production of s...
Kaygı, Korku ve Arzu Üçgeninde Fantazi
Yılmaz, Olcay (ODTÜ- AYNA Klinik Psikoloji Destek Ünitesi, 2021-10)
Bu yazıda Sigmund Freud’un kuramında kilit bir öneme sahip olan ve daha sonraları Jacques Lacan tarafından derinlemesine incelenen fantazi kavramı irdelenmektedir. Freud’da fantezi kavramının ortaya çıkışı rüyalar, gündüz düşleri, baştan çıkarma kuramı, sahte anı gibi olgularla ilişkiliyken, Lacan’da fantazi kavramı daha çok kaygı, korku, arzu ve fobi ile ilişkilendirilmiştir. Bu kavramların yanı sıra fantazi, Lacan’ın Öteki kavramı ile de doğrudan ilişkilidir. Fantazi kavramının farklı anlamlarda kullanılm...
