Overview

Kaya (sociology, Dumlupinar U., Turkey) uses the example of Turkey to defend his theory of multiple and non-converging modernities, not reducible to "Westernization." After describing his theory on the variety of modernity, he uses it to criticize both Francis Fukuyama's "end of history" thesis and Samuel Huntington's "clash of civilizations" idea. He rejects the idea that Turkish modernity is an extension of Western models, instead seeing Kemalist Turkey as opposing West and East and adopting its own approach to cultural "singularization."
