Author(s): Ibrahim Elkoca*

Namik Kemal, one of the most visible figures of the Ottoman intellectuals and the subject of numerous studies, is an intellectual who left his mark on the period with his writings, plays and the ideas he put forward. In addition to his commitment to his national and spiritual values, Namik Kemal, an intellectual who adopted the idea of liberal democracy as a maxim, is also a writer who comprehended the Tanzimat Period, which brought about comprehensive transformations for the Ottoman Empire. The issue of whether religion was an obstacle to progress in the process of social reform in the Ottoman Empire has been the subject of extensive academic research. This article seeks to answer the question of the foundations of the idea of progress in Namik Kemal by investigating the role of science in the process of social reform.
