This study explores the Turkish modernization through stream of consciousness in the works of Ahmet Hamdi Tanp?nar, O?uz Atay and Orhan Pamuk. The first instance, reflected by Tanp?nar’s A Mind at Peace, presents a collective and historical projection of national identity. On the basis of synthesis, Tanp?nar’s collective consciousness suggests a civilization resolution, an alliance in lieu of clash of civilizations”. The second instance, presented by Atay’s The Disconnected, illustrates the inner paradox of an intellectual and his struggle between the Eastern and Western world of values. Thus The Disconnected, through characters’ consciousness, vocalizes the mental flux and reflux of those living in a social purgatory. Finally, in the instance of The Silent House, Orhan Pamuk draws a mental manifestation of an abyss between the East and the West. For Pamuk, this gap can only be filled up through an intellectual transformation. Stream of consciousness, as the manifestation of human mind, sets a common ground for all the above-mentioned novels.
