Çığlığın Işıkla Buluşması-Psikiyatri Hastalarının Resimleri (Meeting of Scream and Light - Paintings by Psychiatry Patients)
Author: Prof. Dr. Olcay Yazıcı
ISBN: 9789754047097

In contrast with the opinion that creativity can emerge only in a mentally healthy condition, mental patients can put forth stunning works of art. Should this result be perceived as “functioning of remainder of the creative potential of a person” despite the destructive power of the illness? Or does the illness “change” some of the characteristics of the person and “add” new creation forms even if such forms seem unfamiliar, strange and even dreadful to others? Although this question seems to remain controversial, the argument for patient paintings reaching a striking effect is examined in the Meeting of Scream and Light’.

Atatürk ile Bir Gezinti (A Tour with Atatürk)
Author: İlknur Güntürkün Kalıpçı
Publishing House: Epsilon
ISBN: 9789944829250

Atatürk is a leader who is still remembered today with love, respect and appreciation by both his friends and enemies. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk is the only leader from the 21st century among the leaders of the period in the world. It is because he was a good soldier. It is because he was a perfect statesman. But above all, he was one of us. And this fact made him immortal. Yakup Kadri expressed this fact so well: “He is more advanced than us even after death.” Then let’s go on a tour with Atatürk. Let’s share his secret for immortality. Now sit back comfortably for a ride in time and turn the page.

Ayyıldız Altında Sürgün (Exile Under the Moon and Crescent)
Author: Faruk Şen
Publishing House: Günizi
ISBN: 9758731848

There have been historical relations between Turkey and Germany, extending back a long time and both countries have been mutually influenced in matters of science, culture and art. Esteemed scientists, artists and people of culture escaping national socialism in Germany took refuge in Turkey between 1933 and 1953. In those years and especially in 1933, when the higher education institution Darülfunun was turned into a university, they provided valuable contributions to the university reforms in the Republic of Turkey. The valuable contributions of these scholars were not limited with the university, they were also observed in the field of art, architecture and administration. The invitation made by Atatürk to these esteemed people is another sign of his greatness.

Okul Öncesinde Değer Eğitimi (Preschool Value Education)
Author: Prof. Dr. Gülçin Alpöge
Bilgi Yayınevi
ISBN: 9789752204072

We prepared this book to help teachers and parents who wish to develop ethical (moral) values in children: making the right choice, honesty, love, respect, courage, goodness, responsibility, justice, friendship, concord (tranquility). Aiming to ensure that children learn these values, which we can also refer to as “ethical rules” at an early age, rather than through trial-error, this study focuses on values in chapters and is supported with various activities, tales, stories, poems, songs and drama scenarios.
