The main objective of this paper is to study the tacit and codified knowledge in evolutionary economic models. In these models, knowledge is defined as different from information, and as dynamic, path dependent and embedded in human actions, in other words, in habits or skills, and routines. Such a definition of knowledge, in fact, gives clues about the characteristics, tacit or codified, of knowledge in evolutionary economic models. From this perspective, tacit knowledge resides at the core of routines, and it is needed to interpret even codified information or messages. However tacit and codified knowledge is interrelated, continuous and complementary, furthermore they can turn into each other over time. Hence, the evolutionary perspective denies the bi-polar distinction between tacit and codified knowledge, and emphasizes on their collective presence as embedded in routines.

Serin, İsmail; Ceylan, Yasin; Department of Philosophy (2004)
In this thesis the quiddity of knowledge in Kant's critical philosophy has been investigated within the historical context of the problem. In order to illustrate the origins of the subject-matter of the dissertation, the historical background of Kant's views on the theory of knowledge has been researched too. As a result of this research, it is concluded that Kant did not invent a new philosophical problem, but he tried to improve a decisive solution for one of the oldest question of history of philosophy i...
On the significance of idealizations in sciene
Eyim, Ahmet; Sayan, Erdinç; Department of Philosophy (2005)
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the problems that use of idealizations in science leads to. Idealizations are simplifications and therefore false descriptions of how actual objects behave. Presence of idealizations in scientific theories is the reason for the problems in our understanding of confirmation of theories and also of scientific explanations. Nevertheless, idealizations are ubiquitous especially in natural sciences. Scientists have to employ idealizations because of the complexity of the ...
The causal relationship between energy consumption and economic growth
Çevirgen, Banu; Erdil, Erkan; Department of Economics (2008)
The causal relationship between energy consumption and economic growth has been a controversial subject of the empirical literature. However, there is no common consensus neither on the existence nor on the direction of the causal relationship between energy consumption and economic growth. The purpose of this study is to investigate the causal relationship between energy consumption and economic growth using a consistent data set. Recently developed Granger causality tests in panel data models are used to ...
The determinants of international competitiveness: the case of Turkish manufacturing sector
Gençay, Mehmet; Erdil, Erkan; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2003)
The aim of this thesis is to identify and to study the micro and macro determinants of export performance. The results of micro determinants suggest that there is no significant relationship between export performance and R&D intensity, which could be a result of underreport of R&D expenditures in income statements of firms and the realization of its effects in the long-term. The results for marketing intensity, ratio of foreign exchange profits in total sales, fixed investment intensity and capital intensi...
