Serif Mardin as a Political Sociologist

This paper aims to analyze the status of Şerif Mardin in the history of Turkish political thought. Mardin is one of the leading founders of social sciences in Turkey. In this respect, he has a deep impact on Turkish social sciences both on theoretical perspective and scientific tradition. Mardin has framed an alternative paradigm dealing with history of modernization in Turkey, following the impact of liberal-humanitarian and enlightenment tradition. In this view, his program of study reveals substantial diversity from the discourse of “etatist-elitist” tradition in Turkey.
