This thesis analyzes the compatibility of Islam and democracy in Turkey in the fight of Fethullah GOien's views. In Turkey, the most signifıcant obstacfe in front of consolidation of democracy seems to be the irreconciliable attitudes of the radicals- both on the part of the lslamists and on the part of the secularists. lt can be claimed that if those radical parts are rasped, cansensus politics and social harmony will be inevitable. Fethullah GOien may play a key role at this point through his re-interpretation of Islam in the light of lstamic and communal traditions specific to Anatofia.
