An Attempt to Interpret Atatürk's Turkey In Terms of The Mechanistic Approach
Anahtar Kelimeler: Turkey, Atatürk, Mechanistic Approach
Founded by Atatürk the Turkish Republic is one of the most dyna¬mic countries of the present century and is developing continuously. This has been possible due to the strong basis provided by Atatürk for his work. In the present study, Atatürk's Principles are analyzed using the approach of the "Mechanistic School" of sociology. The statical basis and the main dynamic parameter of Atatürk's Turkey are abstracted and defined for application in Newton's "Equation of Motion". It turns out that, "humanity" and "peace" constitute the core of its statical principles, whereas "education" İs the main parameter of its dynamics.
