  • INVESTIGATION OF THE GRIEF PROCESS IN THE BEREAVEMENT IN THE CONTEXT OF
           COPING AND COGNITIVE DISTORTIONS

    • Authors: Muhammet Enes Kaya; Filiz Kumova
      Abstract: Losing a loved one due to death is one of the most painful experiences in human life, but it is a natural reality that can be encountered in the normal course of life. While it is a normal and expected part of life, it presents significant challenges, adding complexity to the grieving process with various dynamics. This complexity necessitates the examination of the impact of loss in various aspects of life, taking into account related factors. The grief process, which typically follows a loss and is as unique as a fingerprint for each person, underscores the importance of studying the cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and social changes and reactions of individuals who have experienced loss. It is also crucial to consider the sociocultural context in which the person is situated and where the loss occurred. From this perspective, it is valuable to explore the coping mechanisms employed by individuals who have experienced loss and the cognitive changes they undergo during the grief process. This review study aims to delve into the concepts of loss, grief, coping, and cognitive distortion, offering insights based on existing literature. By doing so, this study seeks to elucidate how individuals cope with bereavement and shed light on observed cognitive distortions stemming from the cognitive changes experienced during the grief process. This information can be beneficial for experts, researchers, and individuals who have experienced loss, aiding them in comprehending their own grief journeys.

  • EVALUATING THE IMPACT OF DEPRECIATION ON THE PROFITABILITY: UK FASHION
           COMPANIES

    • Authors: Emily Draper; Isik Akin
      Abstract: This study investigates the sophisticated dynamics of depreciation and its influence on the profitability of fashion companies in the United Kingdom. The UK's fashion industry has gained substantial growth recently and witnessed escalated sales in both new and used apparel. However, the fashion industry faces sustainability challenges due to the predominantly resulting rapid expansion of the fashion sector. In this competitive business environment, understanding the role of depreciation in shaping profitability becomes pivotal. Examining data collected from 17 UK-based fashion companies spanning the 2018 to 2022 period, this research precisely analyses how depreciation influences key financial indicators: return on assets, return on equity, and operational profit. The methodological approach involves the application of quantile regression analysis, and it offers an in-depth exploration of the relationship between depreciation and these vital financial variables. The findings of this study reveal that there is no statistically significant relationship between depreciation and return on equity or return on assets within the purview of UK fashion companies. However, a positive and statistically significant relationship exists between the depreciation and operating profit. This positive relationship potentially arises from various factors such as enhanced asset utilization, long-term investments, involvement in capital-intensive industries, sustained revenue growth, and improvements in asset quality. These findings have significant implications for stakeholders within the UK fashion industry. While depreciation may not strongly influence return on equity or return on assets, its correlation with operational profit reveals a nuanced aspect of financial performance within these companies.

  • TURKISH-RUSSIAN RELATIONS FROM THE COLD WAR TO 2002 AS THE BEGINNING OF
           CURRENT RELATIONS

    • Authors: Burak Şakir Şeker
      Abstract: In this study, Turkish-Russian relations in the Cold War period and the Post-Cold War time till 2002 are discussed. Since 2002 is accepted as the beginning of current relations and a breakthrough year in relations, a separate analysis is required for the next period. It is seen that the relations between Türkiye and Russia were tense between the years 1945-1965, and then went through a soft period until the end of the Cold War period. It is clearly understood that Turkish-Russian relations gained a new dimension after the collapse of the USSR. Economic-commercial relations constituted the most important area of this period, in which competition also predominated. In the first part of this study, the historical development of Turkish-Soviet relations in the Cold War period is tried to be discussed. Economic and commercial relations assumed the locomotive role in the cooperation between the two countries, giving a different quality to the political, military and security issues and relations with third countries. In the second part, the new era for the affairs is analyzed and, in this regard, it should be noted that the leaders of the two countries have made great efforts since the beginning of the 1990s. In these years, many strategic projects were signed and implemented in the context of bilateral relations. It is obvious that the relations between the two countries reached a strategic dimension in areas such as economic-commercial and energy. It is also analyzed that the momentum gained in Turkish-Russian relations and the good level of relations also served regional stability and common interests. Finally, it may be assumed that the years examined by this paper is also a period that helped to create strong relations between two countries in the 21st century.

  • SOCIO-CULTURAL IDEALS OF THE REPUBLIC FROM HALIDE EDIP'S PERSPECTIVE: AN
           EVALUATION BASED ON THE NOVEL TATARCIK

    • Authors: Zeynep Serap Tekten; Zeynep Sancaktutan
      Abstract: The novel, as a literary genre, serves as a historical witness to the era in which it was penned, bearing traces of the social events of that time. Writers, as individuals who both influence and are influenced by society, utilize the events they have personally witnessed as material for their works. Sociology of literature leverages literary works to analyze the intellectual movements, social fabric, and dynamics of social change within specific periods. Modernization or Westernization, often considered to have officially commenced with the Tanzimat reform in the Ottoman Empire, involves the assimilation of numerous innovations into social life. The social changes and transformations during the period beginning with Tanzimat and continuing with the innovations of the Republic found expression in novels of that era in various forms. Halide Edip Adıvar is one such writer who incorporated themes of social change into her works. Addressing issues such as women's education, women's rights, and women's social status, Halide Edip explored similar themes in her novel "Tatarcık," which is the primary source of this study. The central character, Lale (Tatarcık), embodies the ideal woman reflecting the significance of women in Halide Edip's vision for the formation of a new Turkish society. The changes brought about by the Republic's innovations in Poyraz village, where the novel is set, the education of the young individuals introduced as “the seven,” their perspectives on social life, and the lives that superficially imitate Westernization are the central themes examined in the novel "Tatarcık.".

  • EXAMINING THE RELATIONSHİP BETWEEN MONETARY POLICY EFFICIENCY AND
           FINANCIAL DEVELOPMENT IN INNOVATION DRIVEN AND FACTOR-EFFICIENCY DRIVEN
           ECONOMIES: A PANEL DATA ANALYSIS

    • Authors: Remzi Can Yılmaz; Özlem Durgun
      Abstract: This article aims to reveal the relationship between financial development and monetary policy efficiency using panel data from 32 economies. Analyzes were performed using the generalized moments estimator (GMM) using the 2004-2017 year range. The countries that are subject to econometric analysis were taken as a single group. In addition, countries were divided into two different sub-groups: innovation-driven countries and factor and efficiency-driven countries. For financial development, domestic credit to the private sector, stock market capitalization and financial system deposits variables are preferred. According to the findings, financial development affects the effectiveness of monetary policy in innovation-driven economies. In factor- and productivity-driven economies, financial development has not been found to have any impact on monetary policy efficiency, except for a specific case. Findings from the study highlight several important conclusions that policymakers and monetary authorities should consider. In innovation-driven economies, financial development can be used as a powerful tool to increase the effectiveness of monetary policy for achieving macroeconomic targets. In this context, policy makers should implement reforms that encourage the development of financial intermediation, the deepening of capital markets and increased access to financial services. On the other hand, in factor and productivity-driven economies, the sensitivity of monetary policy to financial development tends to be low. In these cases, policy makers should focus on other policy tools to ensure efficiency in the process of achieving macroeconomic targets. However, specific situations may arise that may have an impact on the monetary policy effectiveness of financial development, and the determination of these scenarios is considered to be substantial at the decision-making stage

  • USER ACCEPTANCE OF VIRTUAL COMMERCE ON METAVERSE INSIGHTS FROM INNOVATION
           DIFFUSION THEORY (IDT) AND TECHNOLOGY ACCEPTANCE MODEL

    • Authors: Ayben Ceyhan Günay; Yavuz Toraman
      Abstract: In recent years, technological advancements have also influenced consumer behavior. One of the most significant developments in this regard is the metaverse. The metaverse, which has frequently captured the interest of experts, is a technological system that forms the basis of the current research. In this context, the present study examines the factors that affect the intention to use and acceptance of the metaverse system. The study constructs a research model using the Innovation Diffusion Theory (IDT) and the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to investigate user acceptance of conducting e-commerce activities within the metaverse system. Within this framework, structural equation modeling has been utilized to explain the acceptance of usage by potential metaverse users. The proposed research model has been analyzed using the Smart PLS 3 software package.Among the independent variables of the research, a positive and significant relationship has been found between relative advantage as a mediator and the main variables of TAM. However, no significant relationship has been identified between complexity, another independent variable, and the main variables of TAM. Additionally, a significant relationship has been established between perceived compatibility and perceived ease of use. In this context, from a consumer perspective, when evaluated experientially (effort expended), the shopping experience in the metaverse system shows similarities with physical shopping, while no relationship has been found in terms of performance. The most significant contribution of the research to the literature is that attitude and intention, which are the most important antecedents of active usage of metaverse systems, exhibit a positive and significant relationship with all the variables in the relationship.

      Abstract: This study aims to examine the relationship between capital market-based financial development and economic growth in Turkey with quarterly data for the period 1998-2022. Borsa Istanbul equity index trading volume representing financial development and Gross Domestic Product data representing economic growth are used. In the study, Augmented Dickey and Fuller, Lee and Strazizich (2003, 2004) and Christopoulos and León-Ledesma (2010) Fourier KSS unit root tests, and Tsong et al. (2016), coefficient estimation between cointegrated series is performed using Dynamic Least Squares (DOLS) estimator, and finally causality relationships between variables are tested with Hacker and Hatemi J (2012) bootstrap causality test based on Granger causality. In the model where financial development is the dependent variable, a long-run relationship was found between the series. According to DOLS findings, a 1% increase in economic growth leads to a 1.08372% increase in financial development. This result reveals that economic growth is an indicator that increases capital market-based financial development in Turkey. Moreover, according to the causality findings, financial development is the Granger cause of economic growth at 10% significance level. As a result, the DOLS estimator confirms the demand-following model in the relationship between financial development and economic growth, while the causality finding confirms the supply-led model.

  • EXAMINATION OF ENGINEERS IN WORKING LIFE ACCORDING TO MOBBING AND GENDER
           PERCEPTION SCALES

    • Authors: Elif Betül Yalçı; Gamze Yıldız Erduran
      Abstract: The concept of gender refers to the meaning socially attributed to biologically determined sexes. The realization of the impact of the concept of gender on working life has led to an increase in interest in studies evaluating working life in the context of gender. Studies on the extent of the relationship between the concept of mobbing and the concept of gender are among the studies that attract attention in the literature. The concept of mobbing refers to systematic pressure and harassment in the work environment. In the study, gender perception and mobbing victimisation status of individuals were examined. The data obtained from the participants, who work as engineers, were analyzed using the open source Jamovi (version 2.4.7) program. The results of the research showed that gender perception is not an effective variable on the exposure to mobbing. In the study, it was concluded that the variables of gender, marital status, and the place of residence for the longest period of time during upbringing were not effective on the status of being a victim of mobbing, while they were effective on gender perception. When the differences related to gender perception were examined, it was concluded that the gender variable was more effective on the perceptions of male employees, married employees, and employees who do not live in metropolitan areas towards social life. In the study, while the variable of having children was not found to be effective on gender perception, it was concluded that it was effective on the status of being a victim of mobbing and that individuals who have children are exposed to mobbing more. As a result of the analyses conducted on the participants who were exposed to mobbing, it was seen that 4.9% of female employees were subjected to mobbing by women, 13.4% by men and 28.2% by both genders; while 7.5% of male employees were subjected to mobbing by women, 22.4% by men and 10.4% by both genders.

  • LOST FREEDOM: CRİTİQUE OF INSTRUMENTAL REASON AND THE CULTURE INDUSTRY
           İN THE FRANKFURT SCHOOL

    • Authors: Ali Ekmekçi
      Abstract: One of the most important claims of Enlightenment thought is the expectation that, while natural sciences and technical progress improve the living conditions of humanity, social and moral progress will also ensure that the social and political sphere will be organized and prosper within the framework of freedom and equality. However, the failure of this rational progress to produce the expected outputs led to criticism of this basic idea of the Enlightenment. One of the biggest criticisms in this context came from the school of thought known as the Frankfurt School. According to the Frankfurt School, the Enlightenment mind has experienced a break in history from the aim of human liberation through rational progress. In this context, it is necessary to focus on culture to understand the manifestations of this rupture in advanced industrial societies. Industrialization of culture, in a sense, also includes organizing the individual sphere as the most advanced stage of the total organization of life. In this article, the arguments of the Frankfurt School regarding the relationship between ideology and culture industry will be discussed, and the transformation of freedom into a kind of consumption object that provides temporary and false satisfaction only within the field of individual experience will be examined. The scientific and technological rationality prevailing in advanced industrial societies has gradually moved to the social, political, and cultural dimensions. The industrial production of culture has served to confine freedom to an individual and subjective sphere and has gained an obstructive role in overcoming contradictions at the material level. Through the culture industry, people experience subjective freedom experiences, but these experiences do not create a real impact on the factual world of the daily struggle for existence. In this context, by tracing the Frankfurt School's criticism of the claim of human liberation promised by Enlightenment, the study puts forward the argument that freedom in today's industrial society has now turned into a false freedom that can only be enjoyed in the individual consumption of culture

  • A RESEARCH ON COMPULSIVE PURCHASE BEHAVIOR IN THE CONTEXT OF MATERIALIST
           ATTITUDE AND PRESTIGE SENSITIVITY

    • Authors: Ayşen Akyüz; Asena Temelli Coşgun
      Abstract: Understanding consumption, which is indisputably one of the most important phenomena of our age, is among the main goals of many disciplines. Consumption motivations, personal and social reasons that lead individuals to purchase behavior constitute the primary effort of most researches. Studies conducted in line with this effort reveal that individuals have motivations to gain social status and prestige through consumption, to convey meaning about themselves, and to reflect the ideal "me" through consumption in the modern capitalist world order. So much so that individuals shape their purchasing behavior with their desires independent of their real needs, and solve the negative emotions, anxiety and stress in their lives with chronic buying action. With the present study, it is aimed to make inferences about the materialistic tendencies, prestige sensitivities and compulsive purchasing behaviors of consumers. In line with the determined purpose, a survey was conducted with 308 participants. The obtained data were analyzed statistically. Materialistic attitude, prestige sensitivity and compulsive purchase were examined in the context of gender, age, income, education level and active working life, which are the independent variables of our study, and at the same time, the effect of materialistic tendencies and prestige sensitivity on compulsive buying behavior was analyzed.

  • ISLAMISM IN SLOGANS: READING POLITICAL IDEOLOGY THROUGH SLOGANS IN
           ŞÛRÂ MAGAZINE

    • Authors: Selin Şahin; Enes Şahin
      Abstract: In the modern period, the change in political and social structures and the spread of nation-states and democratic regimes around the world have moved society from the position of the governed to the position of political decision-makers. This has made it essential for all segments of society to be informed about political issues. The philosophical and sociological depth of these issues has led to the emergence of different ways of teaching and communication for societies to adopt these new political methods. Political groups advocating different political ideologies have also been involved in this quest to convey their ideas to all segments of society. One of the elements that emerged as a result of these searches is slogans. The fact that slogans present the basic assumptions of a political idea or ideology in key concepts and in a memorable way has led states and political groups to use slogans frequently. One of the elements that used slogans to convey their political mentality was the followers of Islamist thought. This study aims to discuss the main tensions of Islamist thought in Türkiye in the 1970s around slogans. In this regard, the slogans at the top of the pages in the forty-one issue of Şûrâ magazine were examined using the discourse analysis method. The conclusion obtained from the study is that Şûrâ magazine has a religiously literalist and exclusionary, socially marginalizing, and politically revolutionary discourse, and the slogans in the magazine are used to summarize and convey these understandings.

  • THE ASYMMETRİC EFFECT OF PRODUCER PRİCES ON CONSUMER PRİCES İN
           TURKİSH ECONOMY

    • Authors: Bekir Aşık
      Abstract: The aim of the study is to evaluate the asymmetric impacts of producer price on consumer prices and cointegration relationship between two price indexes for Turkish economy from 2003.M1 to 2022.M12. Another aim is to analyze the causality between Producer Price Index (PPI) and Consumer Prıce Index (CPI). The Autoregressive Distributed Lag Model (ARDL) and Non-Linear Autoregressive Distributed Lag Model (NARDL) is estimated to determine relation between PPI and CPI and asymmetric effects of PPI on CPI. The causality relation is examined using Toda-Yamamoto Granger Causality method. According to the results, there is a cointegration relation between CPI and PPI. The ARDL model implies that PPI has a positive impact on CPI both in the short time period and in the long time period. The NARDL model indicates that although positive shocks to the PPI have positive effects on CPI, negative shocks do not have statistically significant effect on CPI. In addition to these results, Toda-Yamamoto Granger Causality method indicates that a bidirectional causality is found between two price indexes.

  • PARTICIPATION OF NON-GOVERNMENTAL ORGANIZATIONS IN DECISION MAKING IN
           TURKIYE

    • Authors: Ayşegül Güler
      Abstract: Non-governmental organizations are organizations serving for the benefit of society, the conditions of establishment of which are determined by law. Although it is sometimes seen that they continue to operate outside of their aims, this is due to the non-establishment of the tradition of non-governmental organizations. The historical place, function and development process of civil society organizations in Türkiye differ from the formation of civil society organizations in western societies. The activities, effects and role of civil society organizations in society are important. In the study, whether the non-governmental organizations operating in Türkiye actually represent civil society, the barriers to their effectiveness and development are included. In this direction, the information obtained by using data collection tools was examined as content. Non-governmental organizations in Türkiye do not yet have the conditions to assume the role they should play in society. Although non-governmental organizations are numerous and diverse, they are unable to provide the necessary communication between society and decision-makers. However, the functioning of these institutions is expected to be institutionalized and undertake the mission of representing their masses instead of individuals. The aim of this study is to examine the stage of participation of civil society organizations in decision-making mechanisms, especially in Türkiye. In order to increase participation in decision mechanisms, non-governmental organizations should be better equipped in terms of knowledge and become more effective. In the study, the concept of non-governmental organizations and its historical development will be explained respectively, the fields of activity of non-governmental organizations, their functions, their effects on decision-makers, their reflections on society, the instrumentalization of non-governmental organizations and the obstacles to civilization of non-governmental organizations will be examined.

    • Authors: Vildan Bayram
      Abstract: Organizational change is an important factor to compete successfully in today's business world. Successful implementation of change can help organizations increase their sustainability and gain innovative competitive advantage. Rapidly developing technological developments have caused a great change in production and management activities. Organizations that follow the developments in information and communication technologies, learn these developments and use them within their own structure, will achieve success by gaining competitive advantage and will ensure their organizational sustainability. In this context, the mediating role of organizational sustainability in the effect of openness to organizational change on innovative competition approach was examined in this study. The population of the research consists of 251.734 people working in the health and social services sector throughout Turkey. In the study, 413 health and social services workers were reached by using the convenience sampling method. The analyzes of the obtained data were made with the SPSS 21.0 program. According to the normality analysis, it was determined that the scale scores showed a normal distribution, and the relationship between the scale scores was analyzed with the Pearson correlation test. Mediation was examined with Process analysis and Bootstrap technique was used. The results of the analysis determined that openness to organizational change has an effect on innovative competition approach. It also showed that organizational sustainability and its sub-dimensions play a mediating role between openness to organizational change and innovative competition approach. When these results are evaluated, it is important that organizations and managers are open to change and that employees try to increase their level of openness to change. Organizational change is possible if all employees believe in this change. The openness of organizations to innovation affects their openness to organizational change. Organizational managers will gain innovative competitive advantage and contribute to the sustainability of the organization if they increase the motivation and participation of the employees in the change process.

  • CRITICISM OF THE POVERTY CULTURE APPROACH: FAMILY AND POVERTY-BASED
           EVIDENCE FROM TURKEY

    • Authors: Ayşe Nur Çiftçi; İskender Gümüş
      Abstract: The culture of poverty approach was developed by Lewis and has been popular in the international literature for more than half a century. This approach has been heavily criticized as it accuses the poor of being morally bankrupt. It is argued that there is a deterioration in the family structure of the poor, illegitimate births and divorce are common. This advocacy points to a breakdown among poor families alike, not just in the United States but globally everywhere. The first aim of this study is to show evidence from the example of Turkey that the culture of poverty does not have universal homogeneity. The study was initiated by presenting the relevant literature in detail. Then, the relationship between family structure and income levels for 2019 was tested with Pearson correlation analysis. The data has been compiled from TUIK and analyzes were repeated according to both NUTS-2 and NUTS-3. The reason why Pearson correlation analysis is preferred is that it is one of the most basic analysis methods that has been widely used in statistical analysis for more than a century. The findings showed that the culture of poverty approach is not valid for Turkey. Contrary to what is expected in Turkey, as the level of education and income rises, the weight of the divorced increases. In summary: 1) Divorce is more common among those with higher incomes, without any significant gender differentiation. 2) With divorce, high income level can be maintained without any significant differentiation between both sexes. This is because it is one of the most basic analysis methods that has been widely used in statistical analysis for more than a century. The findings showed that the culture of poverty approach is not valid for Turkey. Contrary to what is expected in Turkey, as the level of education and income rises, the weight of the divorced increases. In summary: 1) Divorce is more common among those with higher incomes, without any significant gender differentiation. 2) With divorce, high income level can be maintained without any significant differentiation between both sexes.

  • A RESEARCH ON PROPERTY-OWNING DEMOCRACY AND ITS APPLICABILITY ON THE BASIS
           OF INCOME AND WEALTH DISTRIBUTION

    • Authors: Emre Örün; Ercan Eren
      Abstract: Discussions on the equitable distribution of income and wealth, as well as the impact of inequality on individual freedom, have been ongoing since the 18th and 19th centuries. Economic inequality affects individuals not just economically, but also in terms of their freedoms in social life. Thus, it is crucial to assess studies on inequality from both economic and social perspectives. This study analyzes debates on income and wealth distribution within the framework of property-owning democracy. Furthermore, it explores the origins of property-owning democracy in the context of economic inequality. An additional focus of this study is the examination of the feasibility of the property-owning democracy regime. Examples of worker-owned firms and worker cooperatives in the United States, Spain, and Poland are scrutinized to assess the viability of property-owning democracy. The literature review indicates that the concept of property-owning democracy traces its roots to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Thomas Paine, and John Stuart Mill. The examination of worker-owned firms and worker cooperatives, based on case studies from specific countries, leads to the conclusion that implementing a property-owning democracy is indeed feasible.

  • THE MEDIATING ROLE OF WORK-LIFE BALANCE IN THE EFFECT OF DIGITALIZATION ON
           JOB SATISFACTION

    • Authors: Alp Aydınlı; Ahmet Erkasap, Ali Özcan
      Abstract: The contemporary corporate landscape is characterized by the swift progression of digital transformation, which exerts a substantial influence on employees' job satisfaction and work-life equilibrium. The aforementioned impacts, which have a significant impact on the performance of businesses and the well-being of employees, indicate a growing significance attributed to the notions of work-life balance and job happiness. Within this particular setting, it has become imperative for managers to prioritize the development of initiatives aimed at fostering a harmonious equilibrium between work and personal life. The objective of this study is to examine the influence of digital transformation on employees' levels of job satisfaction, as well as to investigate if the various aspects of work-life balance play a mediating role in this relationship. The study was carried out utilizing questionnaires obtained from a sample of 393 individuals employed in the banking industry. The data that was gathered for this study was analyzed using the SPSS for Windows 25.0 and AMOS 25.0 software packages. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was utilized to assess the validity of all scales, while the research model underwent testing through the application of structural equation modeling (SEM). The study employed an observed path analysis model and the bootstrap method to examine the presence of a mediation effect within the sub-dimensions of the work-life balance variable. The results indicate that digital transformation exerts a substantial and direct impact on both work-life balance and job satisfaction. Furthermore, it was noted that the sub-dimensions of work-life balance, namely the "positive impact of work on life and positive impact of life on work," played a partial mediating role in the relationship between digital transformation and job satisfaction. This study possesses a distinctive quality in relation to its topic matter, as no other comparable one-to-one study has been identified. In this regard, it is believed to provide insights into analogous investigations for subsequent research endeavors.
