Abstract

Miniatures appear to be a branch of art unique to the East. However, miniatures were also found in Western handwritten manuscripts until the invention of the printing press. This tradition began with the writing of the Bible to spread Christianity after its acceptance and illustrating Biblical topics made them easier to be understood at a time of low literacy levels. As a result, they continued the use of miniature art arising from a need in Western art. Most of the Armenian that have survived until the present day are religious in content. It has been ascertained from obtained data that the number of handwritten manuscripts illustrated with miniatures on different (i.e. non-religious) subjects is very low. In comparison, there are handwritten Ottoman manuscripts illustrated with miniatures on a variety of subjects. In this article, examples of Ottoman and Armenian religious miniatures from different cultures are compared in terms of their subject matters, composition, figures and colours and these examples have been presented in schematic charts. The aim of this work is to compare Ottoman and Armenian (both of which being multi-cultural identities) religious miniatures with miniatures where similar subjects are found together with their images.

Keywords: Miniature, Armenian and Ottoman Miniature, Islam, Christianity.

Whereas, the present study focuses mostly on the effects of the migrations on the countryside based on the principles of geography. The migration that started for various reasons in Boraboy village, which is the field of study, in the 1950s accelerated after 1985. The village population that exceeded 2500 in the 1975s decreased to 740 according to the data of 2016. The migration in the field did not only affect the amount of the population, but also brought about certain positive and negative changes in the demographic structure, settlement pattern, type of dwellings, the use of agricultural fields, product pattern, type of production, and traditional values and rituals. These changes are examined in the present study and explained by giving theses/determinations as examples.

Abstract

Modern point of view interprets the formation of Greek Philosophy as a transition of ‘irrational myth’ into a ‘rational logos’. One of the main reasons why philosophy is called as Greek miracle is that the transition is claimed to be extremely powerful. However; myth, as the Greek world suggests, is a way to interpret the world and it constitutes their base of thinking. The myths used in Plato dialogs are considered as a proof of this condition. Socrates and other speakers who speak in dialogs express varied myths whenever question-answer dialectics are interrupted or stuck for different reasons. The myths being told have such different functions as contextualization, documentation, making an anology, removing lingual distinction and enhancing the meaning. In this respect, myth is a motivating and potentially persuasive strenght. Based on the functions of the myths used in Plato dialogs, the study aims to make an interpretation over the distinction of myth and lagos related to the origins of philosophy.

Abstract

The general failure of assimilation policies in the Western countries and the growth in the demand for recognition from different people whose identity is ignored have enabled the continuation of various debates within the multiculturalism as an identity politics. Considering the approaches advocating multiculturalism, it is seen that libertarian and communitarian approaches are brought forward as two dominant approaches. While the libertarian approach gives priority to individual rights, the communitarian approach argues that the priority should be given to community and group rights. Both approaches base their claims on different reasons in this context. In this study, firstly, it will be emphasized why identity has become such a foreground nowadays, then it will be focused on the relationship between this and multiculturalism in the context of libertarian and communitarian approaches, and the main paradoxes in these approaches. So, it is aimed to contribute to the scientific literature on this subject by making a unique evaluation in a critical perspective on the dominant in multiculturalism. As the libertarian approach in terms of multiculturalism has included various paradoxes, such as over identification basic human principles like equality and freedom as individual-centered to liberalism and criticism of higher social formations at this point, the communitarian approach that places community and group identities to forefront, and ignores individual differences among them has also various paradoxes in itself.

Abstract

Sense of vindication is a devastating feeling along with consequences such as slander, blackwash, negative criticism, and alienation. But this feeling does not come into being by itself. This emotion that is based on weakness occurs after revenge and continuity of jealousy. People who are hurt and injured yearn for revenge, but in many cases they cannot fulfill this desire because of their weakness. On the other hand, people envy many values. Many people want to have values such as beauty, power, influence, success, intelligence, wealth, splendor, fortune.Yet their weakness prevents them to reach thes evalues. They envy these values and those who hold them and this jealousy becomes vindication with the consciousness that they will never reach these values. Vindication is a feeling that affects people relation with truth, values and other people. The person who is poisoned sense of vindication turns into a man of vindication. The man of vindication first denies the values due to the effect of this poison, then falsifies them and eventually reverses them and obtains a system of values that is totally different from the beginning. The relationship between this person and the truth is also problematic. This person is in both blindness an dillusion against both his position and his values, and also against the events about the situation of others. While deceiving himself in order to preserve his perception of self-respect, he denies the value of others and sees things differently than they are. The basic relationship that this person develops with the help ofsense of vindication is hostility to other.

ICT AND SOCIO-ECONOMIC TRANSFORMATION: THE EXPERIENCE OF NIGERIA

Abstract

The emergence of information and communication technology (ICT), especially in developing countries, can best be described as epochal. This is mainly because of the socio-economic transformation it has brought about. Virtually every aspect of modern life has been touched by ICT: countries have witnessed massive injection of funds through direct foreign investment, banking operations have been revolutionised, hitherto unknown employment creation opportunities have become a reality, business operations have been enhanced without the necessity for physical contact, and vehicular movement has been enhanced in many countries. In many developing countries, the traditional drawbacks of poor infrastructure have been largely overcome through the deployment of ICT. In many African countries, however, the actual impact of ICT on socio-economic development has yet to be studied in any systematic way – a lapse attributable in part to the fast pace of change that characterises the ICT sector, but also to the fact that compared to the developed countries, African countries still lag behind in ICT investment, and the low-level of support by government and the private sector to research devoted to track development trends. This paper explores current literature on the impact of ICT on socio-economic transformation based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) of Fred D Davis (1989). Focusing on Nigeria, but with lessons drawn from South Africa and other African countries, the paper highlights, among other things, the factors that enhance or inhibit the contributions that ICT could make in the country’s drive to transform the economy.
