Seküler Bir Alan Olarak İktisat ve Din İlişkisi

Tarihe yön veren iki başat kavram olan din ve iktisat arasındaki ilişkinin analizi, sosyal bilimler için hiç şüphesiz önemli bir yer tutmaktadır. Ontolojik olarak farklı tabiatlara sahip olansöz konusu bu iki unsurun birbiriyle ilişkisi, bu özgünlük göz önüne alındığında daha özel birkonuma yükselmektedir. Bu noktada, hem bağımlı hem de bağımsız değişkenler olarak elealındıkları yaklaşımların, sosyal bilimler dâhilinde, özel araştırma alanlarına işaret ettikleri gözeçarpmaktadır. Söz konusu alanların her birinin köklü bir geleneğe dayanması, karşılaşılan isimlerin büyüklükleri üzerinden de teyit edilebilir. Böylece; modernizasyon, sekülarizasyon ve iktisatsosyolojisinin deterministik yapısı ile dinî algının, serveti ürettiği yaklaşımlar bir tarafta; iktisadıbir meşrulaştırma işleminin bir tamamlayıcı aracı olarak ele alan dinî iktisat ile dinî tercihlerisoğukkanlılıkla ele alan dinin iktisadı diğer tarafta durmaktadır. Ve bu ayrışma ile emperyalkarakteri ve hesap gücüyle ilişkilerini yeniden konumlandıran iktisadın, tartışmalı doğası ortayaçıkmaktadır. Sonuç olarak söz konusu zıt dalgaların tesiri altında, mutlak olan ile kurulacakilişkinin analizi de iktisat için bir öz bilince işaret etmektedir.

Relationship of Economics and Religion as a Secular Field

Analysis of the relationship between religion and economics, as two dominant history-shaping concepts, without a doubt plays a significant role for the social sciences. The mutual relationship of ontologically different natures of these two elements, with a special position in this originality, rises to a more specific location. At this point, within the social sciences, approaches that consider as both dependent and independent variables, sign to stand out to specific research areas. Each of these areas that based on a long tradition, can also be confirmed on the greatness of the names encountered. Thus, with wealth creating religious perceptions, modernization, secularization and deterministic structure of economic sociology is on the one side , and with economics of religion dealing calmly at religious preferences, religious economics that considers economics as a complementary tool to a justification process standing on the other side. Through this decomposition, with the imperial character and accounting power, the controversial nature of economics appears by recoordinating its own relations. As a result, under the influence of the opposing waves in question, analysis of the relationship established with the ‘absolute’ also indicates to a consciousness for economics.
