Although the research on Ottoman science in Turkey is carried back to 1955 academically, it is still very new. For the last 20 years or so, important studies have been carried out on Ottoman science, and with these studies, general opinions about Ottoman science have gradually changed. In particular, the Ottomans did not follow the West sufficiently, and the evaluations made only by looking at the innovation movements are far from drawing the general framework of Ottoman science. Studies of the history of science show us that the success of civilizations is largely dependent on scientific and cultural movements. In this sense, it is impossible to say that the Ottoman Empire, which managed to become a 600-year-old world empire, failed in science. This book, which we call Science and Technology in the Ottomans, is a study that compiles the researches of science historians working in this field in Turkey and consists of some published articles. The aim of the study is to convey the researches and results in this field to the general reader. Science and Technology in the Ottomans consists of three main parts. The first chapter contains general writings on Ottoman science and is titled An Overview of Science and Philosophy. The second part is devoted to the subject of Mathematical Sciences (Mathematics, Astronomy and Physics) in the Ottomans. The third part includes the subjects of Geography, Geology, Medicine and Technology in the Ottomans.
