THE PLACE OF RELIGION IN TURKISH SOCIETY: AN ANALYSIS THROUGH THE LENS OF THE CENTER-PERIPHERY THESIS

Abstract

Author(s): Malik ABDUKADIROV

Turkish society has been analyzed for a long time by ?erif Mardin’s center-periphery thesis. This segmentation between the center and periphery is still very essential in understanding Turkish society. This article examines the place of religion in Turkish society from the classical period of the Ottoman Empire to recent times by using ?erif Mardin’s center-periphery thesis. While religion was an important element of the Ottoman Empire, it moved toward the periphery because of strict secularization policies which were implemented in Modern Turkey after its foundation. On the other hand, there has been a silent but powerful resistance against the strict secularization process of Turkey throughout its history; therefore, religion has moved toward the center. In this article, the changing place of religion in Turkish society is predominantly examined from the perspective of ?erif Mardin’s analysis.
