(p.137) Chapter 7 A Theory of Modernity in the Light of the Turkish Experience
Social Theory and Later Modernities
Liverpool University Press

This chapter summarizes the topics in the earlier chapters, which led to the main argument that the existing social theory is unsound for analysing ‘later modernities’, and elaborates on the concept which has defined later modernities and the lessons learned in present-day Turkey. It concludes with the statement that Turkey must be seen as a singularized culture rather than a border country between Islam and the West, and also states that although Turkey cannot become fully a Western nation, it also cannot completely separate itself from the West.

Keywords:   European Union, social theory, present-day Turkey, Islamic countries, Western nation
