Between Ethics and Morals: Turkish Moral Philosophy

This article evaluates the following genres in terms of the usage of ethics and morality: compilations of Turkish moral philosophy, philosophy dictionaries, encyclopedias, books on introduction to moral thought and the history of moral thought, and publications related to practical ethics. The article has as a starting point the observation that there is a distinct difference between the concept of ethics as it refers to the study of morality at a philosophical level and the concepts of morality and the philosophy of morality. However, the conclusion demonstrates that the course of ethics in Turkish literature has been contrary to this distinction. Furthermore, the argument that ethics must be expanded beyond a philosophical discourse because it is general in nature is discussed. “A Bibliography of Studies on Turkish Moral Philosophy After 1928” is provided at the end of the article.
