Overview

Secularism and Revivalism in Turkey: A Hermeneutic Reconsideration / Edition 1

In this new interpretation of the modernization and secularization of Turkey, Andrew Davison demonstrates the usefulness of hermeneutics in political analysis. A hermeneutic approach, he argues, is essential in understanding the complex relations between politics and religion in post-Ottoman Turkey-and, more broadly, between politics and matters of culture throughout the modern world.
