A top title under which republic, education, philosophy and religion are used together must be interesting for people who are interested in the issue as key concepts in explaining the course of contemporary thought in Turkey. Yet, this study doesn‘t focus on debates among materialist or idealist movements appearing during Tanzimat Period, or on the issue of how religion or metaphysical problems are discussed in high-school coursebooks of philosophy. This study aims only at directing attentions over the curriculum in outline. Moreover, it, at least, brings forward the discussion of the large body of knowledge centralising the problem of religion in teaching philosophy. It also aims at detecting the ideological background responsible for the composition of the curriculum. Attracting attentions on the curriculum will of course provoke the minds towards interesting issues implied by concepts such as westernisation, republic, metaphysics, religion, and philosophy.
