Yeditepe University Brochure - 2023 - 2024

“I leave no verse, no dogma, no stereotyped rules as my spiritual heritage. My spiritual heritage is science and reason. Those who follow me will confirm that in the face of the tough and fundamental difficulties that we have to overcome, we may not completely achieve the goals, but we will never make concessions, and take science and reason as our guides. Time is moving fast. Even the understanding of happiness and unhappiness of nations, societies and people is changing. In such a world, it would be denial of the development of reason and science to claim setting up never changing rules. It is obvious what I want to do for the Turkish Nation and what I try to achieve. Those who want to follow me, if they accept the guidance of reason and science on this fundamental axis, will become my spiritual heirs.” Mustafa Kemal ATATÜRK
