Managers’ Incapability and Psychology of Being Defeated in Turkey


The sustainability of the social existence depends on the presence of problem solving capacity and fulfillment of own tasks and responsibilities of all groups and individuals; especially organizations and institutions. Societies maintain their existence as nations and states through social institutions like family, school and temple; public institutions like central and local government entities; private organizations like companies producing goods and services and other formal or informal organizations (such as non-governmental organizations). The essential task for all these formal and informal organizations is to fulfill the needs of several different social subsystems and provide appropriate solutions arising in this area. For the organizations of all types, the main indicator of management capability of managers and human resources are that, if the issues in the area under their responsibility are resolved. In the organizations and societies which managers have insufficient skills and abilities to manage, internal conflicts are inevitable. In the societies which the problems cannot be resolved properly and the internal conflicts cannot be prevented; after a while, a deep “being defeated” and “being a loser” psychology arises in people.

Conservative Change


To expect the strict variation from a civilization envision means that those who expect it are trapped by modernism. The mentality revolution does not make change come to life. Furthermore, it will make a rude conservatism come to life. To claim to build a new civilization, is an envision which is rich in terms of petroleum, away from circulation, who literally holds the reality in his hand and pull his back (the historical deepness.)

The Hill of Istanbul: The Story of a Plaza, Taksim


Taksim Plaza, with its historical Barracks Building and Atatürk Sculpture, haven’t

changed much recently. If it was today, the architectural arts that should be protected with

sensibility, because of that change, was destroyed and pushed in the deep pages of history.

Among the architectural samples that should be under protection in Taksim is AKM.

(Atatürk Cultural Center). It is the architectural heritage that reflects the properties of that time.

It can be said that, the mentality that lets AKM to be destroyed, and instead wants to build

The Marmara Hotel where it stands, is a result of our sick thought of to become civilized.

The reasons behind this decision is really heartbreaking.

Dr. Lütfi Kırdar’s 12 Years of Service Time Was the Beginning of the First Big Reconstruction Works for Istanbul

If we compare New york to Istanbul, we can say that New York is a disaster, and Istanbul is a heaven… says the founder of modern architecture Le Corbusier. Le Corbuser does not forget those words he said, and in the future, he adds: A person plants trees where there are buildings. But we kill them. İstanbul is a garden of fruits. While our cities are just a stone. This statement is the statement of admiring the islam architecture and urbanism. Of course there was a contradiction in what the Master Le Corbusier said and did sometimes.

In order to understand the background of the convergence between USA and Cuba, the new discussion that goes on in Cuba under the leadership of Raul Castro in the year 2006 has a crucial importance. The evaluation below was written by Petras and Abaya in 2007 about the recent problems that are taking place in Cuba. It was heavily criticized without naming by Fidel Castro’s essay titled: ‘’The Super Revolutioners’’. Now it is time to remember this argument once more.

The difficulty of publishing an academic and intellectual journal is obvious. In this sense, both refereed essays should be a part of the process, and the rejection of the essays that do not abide by the rules are the main difficulties for the publisher. But this situation, is a must for refereed magazines.

One of the difficult subjects for us is when our writers want to publish an academic writing, their name should be published with an academic name. This rule is meaningless because the Board of Publication decides these writings to be published with a unanimity. Therefore, academical titles are meaningless.

On the other hand, the intellectual writings are important in terms of following the up to dateness. So we want our writings and essays to be consistent with the publication date. The aim we are trying to achieve with this is the qualified ideas will be able to live in the intellectual world. We think people who administer us are crucial in terms of guidance. And towards the aim of the New Turkey, we want to create possibilities which will help people to question: ‘’Where is new Aydın?’’. We are about to lay the foundations of a platform that exclusive to Aydın. After we found the research center, we want to argue the future of Aydın with a complete journal. In the future, we will announce news about the special issue titled the New Aydın on www.yenifikirhaber.com and on other sources. We’re happy to announce that.

Thank God, we published our 13th issue. On journal publishing, this number is highly crucial and defines itself. While we were at the beginning, we thought about our strategies for future. In this sense, we are happy we are still going on the road. If God lets us, we will publish our 14th issue in 2015 special for it is the anniversary of our establishment.
