The things you own end up owning you.

Imam versus the Teacher

preliminary thoughts.

Prof. Dr. Serif Mardin, at a latest meeting of SORAR (Sosyal Sorunlari Arastirma ve Cözüm Dernegi) on 23 May 2006, opened up a new discussion through the usage of two-symbols or the dichotomy between the imam and the preacher – lectuter, ögretmen. (1)

The full text can be found in the above link. But the essence of the speech, held by Prof. Mardin is his dichotomy between two intersubjective ideas. However, these intersubjective ideas are not completely separated as black and white, many have also interlocked with themselves.

Prod. Mardin points out the deficit in the Turkish philosophy literature. Especially he finds the teachers unable to produce an ethic , the good and the bad, to superimpose over the Islamic faith.
