Description

This complete series of 10 issues is a pioneering Ottoman publication on the modern philosophy. It introduced work of the classic and contemporary western philosophers to the Islamic public.

The texts were written and translated by several prominent Ottoman authors, such as Abdullah Cevdet, Rıza Tevfik, Subhi Edhem, Ziyâ, Cânib, Memdûh Bey and others, who often had to improvise and invent new technical terms, as the Ottoman language did not yet use many expressions, connected with philosophy, used in the western world.

It is believed, that circa 80% terms on the subject of philosophy, used in Ottoman and later in Turkish, were invented by the authors of this magazine and first published in these 10 issues.

Our series of ten issues is bound together in original publisher’s binding with a portrait of Arthur Shopenhauer.

Worldcat lists three institutional examples (McGill University Library, Princeton University Library, University of California, Los Angeles).
