IS EDUCATION A SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINE?
ISMAIL YILMAZ

Abstract
In this article the answer for the question ‘is education a scientific discipline?’ will be analyzed. Regarding this question, those who oppose the arguments that education is a scientific discipline and others who claim that education is not a philosophic discipline are both right. The question will be reviewed within the framework of philosophy’s and sciences’ basic structures. Those who claim that science is independent from philosophy and it develops by its own dynamics, also argue that the basis of philosophy depends on ‘logic’. On the other hand, science states that ‘logic’ constitutes the structure and it has two different roles within two different disciplines. Logic is necessary but insufficient for science for this reason science and philosophy are totally different from each other, by making this presupposition the study will discuss if education is a scientific discipline or not.
