Hesperus is Bosphorus

A group blog by philosophers in and from Turkey


with one comment

Hesperus is Bosphorus is a group blog by (Anglophone) philosophers who are either working in or are from Turkey, or who have spent some time teaching or studying philosophy in Turkey.

The blog is primarily intended as a forum for the discussion of philosophical ideas. We will also use the blog to publicise philosophy events taking place in Turkey and to discuss the history of philosophy in Turkey. We are open to diverse ways of doing philosophy and thus invite philosophers from all philosophical traditions join the discussions that take place in the blog.

Here is some information about Anglophone philosophy departments in Turkey. If there are any departments that you think we should include, but have not, please leave a note in the comments section below and we’ll add a link.

There are now (as far as we know) seven English language philosophy departments in Turkey:

(1) Boğaziçi University

(2) Middle East Technical University 

(3) Bilkent University 

(4) Yeditepe University

(5) Koç University

(6) Fatih University

(7) Istanbul Sehir University

There is also a MA programme in Philosophy and Social Thought at:

(8) Bilgi University

There are also plans for a new department at:

(9) Istanbul Technical University

In addition there are a number of philosophers (working mainly on political philosophy and philosophy of science) at Sabanci University

There are also many philosophers who work in English at various Turkish language philosophy departments, for example, at Muğla University.

There is also a Francophone department at Galatasaray University.
