Therefore, it would merely be surprising to find definition sections at right after the principles of conception, namely five universals, and before the first part of assent, viz. the proposition, in the books compiled through the tradition of post-Avicennan Arabic logic. Having begun with identifying what definition is, definition sections proceed with its conditions, types, and the things that violate an ideal definition. This paper focuses on the <em>absolute</em> <em>definition</em> itself by considering it as a <em>definiendum</em> and its definition as its <em>definiens</em> to analyze whether this <em>definiens</em> satisfies one particular condition set in definition theory, namely the condition that a <em>definiens</em> must not be applied to anything other than the <em>definiendum</em>. In terms of this specific rule, we encounter with two opposing views on the convenience of the terms implying “necessity” (<em>istilzām</em>) utilized when formulating the <em>definiens</em> of absolute definition.</p> 2019-05-01T21:08:27+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/21 Technology from Ortega y Gasset’s Perspective: Means to Realize Human Being’s Nature 2019-05-01T21:12:54+00:00 Tuba Nur Umut tndonmez@ankara.edu.tr <p>As the most influential Spanish philosopher of the twentieth century José Ortega y Gasset wrote on a large variety of topics including technology and he is considered as one of the first philosophers who addressed the question of technology. In this study, after giving brief information on the main approaches in the philosophy of technology and on Ortega’s place among these approaches, I will present Ortega’s consideration of the problem of technology within his general philosophy and show how Ortega discusses the relationship between men and technology, how he describes the characteristics of both previous technologies and modern technology and to which problems/dangers he draws attention related to modern technology. So this study aims to emphasize his contribution to the contemporary debate over technology in the light of his relevant writings.</p> 2019-05-01T21:11:15+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/27 Proclus on the Eternity of the World 2019-05-29T22:10:11+00:00 Müberra Çay deryamuberra@gmail.com <p>The issue of eternity is as old as the history of humanity which caused to consist of sects, schools and idea circles with various discussions in philosophy and kalam. Although the inception of the discussions originates to Aristotle, Proclus is the first for systematically explaining the issue with the help of arguments in the history of philosophy. He is a Neo-Platonic philosopher who was recognized with his work titled <em>On the Eternity of the World</em>. Proclus has known as the philosopher who internalized views of Plato, besides he follows Aristotle about the eternity of the world. He tried to demonstrate the issue of the eternity of the world with eighteen arguments in his mentioned work. Ishaq b. Hunayn translated into Arabic nine of these arguments, and Shahrastani summarized eight of them in his <em>Kitab al-Milal wa an-Nihal</em>. English translation with Greek originally as eighteen arguments has been published. The work influenced in the Islamic world, especially in the view of the eternity of the world, was internalized by al-Farabi and Avicenna seriously criticized by al-Ghazali.&nbsp; Comprehending the opinions of Proclus on this issue will be suitable to understand the controversies over eternity in Kalam and Philosophy.</p> 2019-05-05T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/26 Taḥrīr Uṣūl al-Handasa wa al-Ḥisāb by N. al-Ṭūsī 2019-05-29T22:11:06+00:00 Ilyas Altuner altuneril@yahoo.com <p>Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī, <em>Taḥrīr Uṣūl al-Handasa wa al-Ḥisāb</em>, ed.
