Aesthetics Studies in Turkey and İsmail Tunalı

In Turkey, issues and problems related to aesthetics have been studied under two categories: (i) literature/art criticism and (ii) philosophical aesthetics. These two categories have been the identifiers used to determine the history of aesthetic thought and where İsmail Tunalı stands within this process. This article views the period until İsmail Tunalı as a preparatory stage for the institutionalization of aesthetic thought. The periodic or chronological classifications concerning literature are examined under “bediiyat” (asthetics). Based on the assumption that inquiring about the aesthetic realm of existence and the questions it encompasses is a philosophical exploration, the aesthetic thought of İsmail Tunalı, who founded and institutionalized philosophical aesthetics in Turkey, has been examined under the title “İsmail Tunalı and Philosophical Aesthetics.”
