The main purpose of this book is to contribute to the intellectual assets of the scholars working in the fields of science, education, fine arts, and humanities. In this regard, this work combines different studies in the fields mentioned above. The very first chapter discusses teaching profession in favor of professionalism and sacredness. The second chapter focuses on foreign experts’ opinions about the structure of Turkish education system. The following chapter deals with the repercussions of recent Turkish education policies. The fourth chapter presents a provocative debate on the underestimation of scientific theories. The subsequent chapter deeply analyzes the role of the political power on state theatres in Turkey. The relationship between society and art discussed through the theater has been examined in terms of the relationship between the individual and art through automatism movement in the sixth chapter. The last chapter intends to make a connection between meliorism and other conceptual themes like optimism and messianism. Hopefully, reading this work will be an inspirational experience for curious scholars.
