In this text with four parts, I tell the Why, How, Where, and When of the fact that Dr. Deniz Erdoğmuş is a charlatan. (Turkish)
3) Where is Dr. Deniz Erdoğmuş a charlatan?
Dr. Deniz Erdoğmuş operates his charlatanism in a private space of instruction carved out of public spaces of interpretation. As such the charlatan serves as an agent of privatization and a factor of neoliberalism.
At some moment in September 2016, in the room TF315 appointed to him in Northeastern University in Boston, Dr. Deniz Erdoğmuş hallucinated that he had a trait of “boss”ness with respect to me, Dr. Işık Barış Fidaner.
The condition of this hallucination is a private space of instruction that is carved out of public spaces of interpretation.
The activity of the charlatan is conditioned by his private space, while the fact of his charlatanism belongs to the public space that he can only inhabit through his private space.
The discrimination between Duped//Unduped people that the charlatan enforces through his misguidance exactly overlaps with the limit that separates the Private//Public spaces that he engenders through his mismanagement.
What is achieved by this misguidance and mismanagement is the privatization of science in the name of science. The sole aim of what is here disguised as science is to undermine universal significance, instead of fostering it.
Therefore, it is most fitting to call the charlatan’s activity counter-science.
The universal significance that the counter-science constantly attempts to undermine can make only one judgement about the bearer of this malicious activity, that he, Dr. Deniz Erdoğmuş, is a charlatan, that he is a malicious impostor that abuses people’s enthusiasm for science by duping them into contributing to his private artificial space that has absolutely nothing to do with science, a space totally disconnected from nature.
Being carved out of public spaces of interpretation, this artificial private space of instruction is a factor of neoliberalism and nothing else.
In the next part, I am going to answer the last question: When is Dr. Deniz Erdoğmuş a charlatan?
