Abstract

Different scientific traditions represent different epistemological perspectives, and the scientific perspective that you advocate will govern the way in which you view what is being investigated, e.g. a natural science approach would have a completely different focus from a social science one. Since the 1600s, the heyday of rationalism, and towards the twenty-first century, different philosophical directions have developed either as a result of the historical–cultural context of which the philosophers have been a part, or as a reaction to the worldview and/or the dominant political situation in society at the current time. Based on clear connections with both rationalism and empiricism, in this paper….

Abstract

The importance of political leaders’ character traits in domestic and international politics of countries is an issue that can not be ignored. For this reason, starting from the Greek philosophers the personality traits of leaders has formed the agenda of many scholars. In foreign policy rather than emotions, interests are more important and even in this field it is seen that leaders’ personality traits may outshine their country and add a positive value to their country or may have a negative impact on their country’s image. Today, when you have a look at the leaders who appear most in the world media, you can easily realize that they come to the fore with their individual characteristics as well as their countries’ political and economic power. This situation is more valid in countries like Turkey which tends to be European although it still has the traces of eastern culture. ….
