Islamism in Contemporary Turkey: Spring of the locality , Winter of the Universe


  • Yavuz Çobano?lu

    () (Munzur Universty)


Today, Islamic thought in all over the world, political practices and religion based on all social relations, Solid, unshakable, unchangeable, basic ideals appear as the ideological face of a returning claim. In fact, this emergence is nothing more than a political movement that is thought to have "lagged behind" the Age of Enlightenment, in the modern era and with new means (TV, social media channels, etc.), as the earthly ideals and thoughts gradually lose ground. This political trend in the name of Islamism is also seen as the duty of God to regulate the will and will of the world and to make a "re-judge" in every field, which is also the sole purpose of human life.Turkey, which was once in a Western-style struggle for modernization, is under the influence of a similar idea of Islamism. This article will try to present an analysis of Islamic thought in Turkey through topics like democratic values and Islamic thought, how differences can live together, conflict between local values and universal values.
