The Cybernetic relevance of architecture: an essay on Gordon Pask's evolving discourse on architecture
Temizel, Ensar (null; 2020-09-16)
Gordon Pask, as one of the leading figures in the field of cybernetics, had an extensive impact on architecture through his lifelong connections with architectural circles in the UK and the USA from the early 1960s until his death in 1996.

With the aim of training effective tutors and to better cater for the needs of writers, many w...
Cognitions and affects: towards a Spinozistic theory of cognition
Yaylım, Berk; Shores, Corry; Department of Philosophy (2022-12)

My intended work area in my dissertation focuses on Spinoza's theory of emotion and a possible Spinozistic theory of emotion. The study will have two main parts. The first part (Chapters 2, 3) will consist of unpacking problems of the contemporary theory of emotions in virtue of the main tension between cognitive and nonco...
A longue durée and comprehensive perspective on the great depression of 1873
Can Deniz , Turna; Yıldırım, Onur; Department of Economics (2020-10-21)
The thesis was written during the long crisis of capitalism which has been on the air since 2008.

Evaluating the crisis within a long period of time, placing it in the global context as well as examining other crises, can widen our perspective and contribute to our understanding about the crisis. Based on these objectives, this thesis examines the 1873-1896 crisis and evaluates its consequences from the...
