From Mythological Ages to Contemporary Ages: Child Education
Yakar, Halide Gamze Ince
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v6 n2 p160-165 Feb 2018
Seeking the solution to the problems of contemporary man and approaching the social events through mythology is the other way to use the healing power of literature education. Having served as a guide for people in the past, mythology is the mirror of the past, which indicates the reasons and possible results of the events that have experienced today. The communities, which internalize the information well through myths, can direct their future, as well. In this study, we aim to examine the child education and the social problems that arise as a result of this education through the protagonist of Duca Kocaoglu Deli Dumrul story, his relation with his parents and his life told in one of the twelve texts in the Book of Dede Korkut, which is an epic of Oghuz Turks. To this end, Suphi Altindöken, which had sparked a debate by killing Özgecen Aslan, a university student in Mersin in 2015, and Deli Dumrul, who shows relatively different characteristics from the other protagonists in the Book of Dede Korkut will be compared by their education that they receive from their parents and the environment that they grew up. In this comparison, we have used two tragedia; of Alcestis and of Antigone by Euripides and Sophocles, two playwrights from 5th and 4th centuries B.C. respectively, and used the story of Dumrul and Azrael, published by Murathan Mungan in 2000. In the context of a mythological story from the 12th century and an event from the 21st century, the main elements of child education, especially the parents' attitude, will be included.
