Although we cannot know the real existence of objects, at least, we say something that cannot be expressed. Then, we should not ignore that our judgments belonging to the unknown field can be interpreted, more or less, on account of the relation to the area of the facts we know them. It is clear that trying to get the meaning of the world in itself or noumenon through the image of the concrete world is useless. Nevertheless, this condition does not mean that it should not make inquiries concerning the noumenon world and discontinue thinking about what the field of existence in itself is. Interpretations on this field of existence in itself cannot be expressed by mere knowledge of the actual area or the real notions. Because, in our image of the real world, there seems a situation that continually changes and which converts its meaning in each change.</p> Ilyas Altuner ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-05-23 2021-05-23 5 1 5 16 The Question of Subject in Descartes and Foucault https://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/56 <p>It is important to make clear the question of subjectivity, how the Modern zeitgeist imposes "subject" idea and around which thinkers the important breaking points that appear in the historical adventure of subjectivity is formed. Since the metaphysical understanding of modernity is based on subjectivity, the essence of human existence becomes science, and the issue of truth evolves into the consciousness of consciousness to know first "itself" and then other existing ones. This work will examine the "subject" issue, which has a wide scope, based on Descartes and Foucault. Thus, it will be analyzed how modern subject thought transformed with Descartes and how it is related to Foucault's criticism of the subject. The study reveals the connections of the humanist belief in the subject on the lines of Descartes and Foucault. The article will present&nbsp;a comparison of Descartes' and Foucault's theory of the subject after a brief review of how subjectivity has transformed.</p> Nazan Yeşilkaya ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-05-30 2021-05-30 5 1 17 30 Analysis of Monotheistic Discourses in Apologist Irenaeus' Adversus Haereses https://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/53 <p>The patristic period is the process that starts with the birth of Jesus and continues until the Nicean Council (325). Before the Nicean Council, Jesus, the only God's apostle, has gone instead of Jesus, the son of God. There was no intact Bible in the time of Irenaeus, who was among the apologists who advocated monotheism. This harsh and hard struggle of Irenaeus against those who do not accept the one God undoubtedly provides us with information about the profile of Christ before the Nicean Council. Adversus Haereses consists of five parts. In the first part of the work, he explains his thoughts on gnosticism, in the second part, he criticizes and refutes the gnostic arguments, and explains the Christian doctrine in the other three parts. The first sentence of his book begins with "There is only one God: it cannot be otherwise." In this article, I will analyze the monotheistic words of Irenaeus in Adversus Haereses.</p> Nurefşan Bulut Uslu ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2021-05-30 2021-05-30 5 1 31 46 An Introduction to Descartes' Philosophy by I.
