Hans Reichenbach in Istanbul

  • Gürol Irzık

Abstract

Fleeing from the Nazi regime, along with many German refugees, Hans Reichenbach came to teach at Istanbul University in 1933, accepting the invitation of the Turkish government and stayed in Istanbul until 1938. While much is known about his work and life in Istanbul, the existing literature relies mostly on his letters and works. In this article I try to shed more light on Reichenbach’s scholarly activities and personal life by also taking into account the Turkish sources and the academic context in which Reichenbach taught and worked.
