Traditional social, economic and cultural values ​​in Turkish society are trying to catch up with the speed of the new world. The effort of neo-classical economics to transform social sciences into natural sciences causes the ties between economics, human and society to be broken. The greater dominance of the 'economic' over the 'social' increases the distances between the economy and society. Economic sociology, on the other hand, looks at economic events from a sociological perspective and takes multidisciplinary approaches instead of uniform approaches. Economic sociology both looks at individual parts and tries to understand and make sense of the whole.
Suggesting a standard economic system and policy for each country is a rather limited approach. So much so that trying to solve the economic problems of a country without understanding the people, society, culture and history is like writing on water. The fact that each country's economic problems are unique brings to mind the views of Hippocrates, the founder of medicine. Hippocrates says that each patient is special and that there can be no standard treatment. As in the famous aphorism "There is no disease, there is a patient". Economic sociology is also in an effort to understand people and society by moving from historical facts. At the same time, it aims to solve economic problems by seeing and knowing the reality of each country in terms of social and economic structures.
In this study, titled "Economic Sociology in Turkey", it is explained from the perspective of different economic sociologists how economic thought formed in Turkey in the historical process and what kind of effects moral values ​​have on the economic structure. For this purpose, the views of different thinkers, from Ziya Gökalp to Sabri Ülgener, from Fahri Fındıkoğlu to Cavit Orhan Tütengil and from Mehmet Eröz to Amiran Kurtkan Bilgiseven, are presented as thinkers who directly or indirectly contribute to the sociology of economics in Turkey. At the same time, state-centered critical approaches to solving recent social and economic problems, culture-centered Weberian approaches investigating the effects of religious and moral approaches on economic processes, capital-centered critical approaches and new economic sociology approaches are explained. One of the most important ways to reduce the distances between economy and society is to be able to take a holistic view of the social and economic problems caused by rapid liberalization in Turkey since the 1990s.
