Abstract:
Abstract: This thesis analyzes liberalism in the Ottoman Empire between 1875-1918 in a political-historical context. First Ottoman Constitution with its liberal principles is emphasized as a liberal gain. After the annulment of the Constitution until 1908, the struggle of the liberals for repromulgation is explained. The role of the omnipotent state understanding in the development of liberalism in Turkish case is discussed and compared with German case. The inevitability of omnipotent state understanding and liberalism as a means of opposition are proposed as the main reasons behind non-germinated Turkish Liberalism.

Ozet: Bu tez 1875-1918 yillari arasinda Osmanli Imparatorlugundaki liberalizm uzerine siyasal-tarihsel bir calismadir. 1876 Kanuni Esasi icindeki liberal prensiplere dayanilarak bir liberal adim olarak anlatilmistir. Kanun-i Esasinin bir yil sonra yururlukten kaldirilmasiyla 1908'e kadar liberal muhalefetin en guclu talebi olmasi vurgulanmistir. Bu arada Osmanli liberalizmindeki guclu devlet anlayisinin vazgecilmezliginin nasil bir paradox yarattigi uzerinde durulmus ve bu noktada Alman liberalizmi ile karsilastirilmistir. Liberalizmin bir muhalefet araci olarak gorulmesi ise Ittihat ve Terakki Cemiyeti orneginde ele alinmis ve bunun guclu devlet anlayisi ile birlikte gucsuz Turk Liberalizminin ardindaki sebep oldugu one surulmustur.
